Hey Jason! For those reading, tell us a little about yourself...
I run my own Marketing, Photography, Videography, Social Media Services agency based in Newquay, incorporating a number of different skills and services. I contribute regularly to UK and international magazines, the advertising industry and UK National press.
I grew up on the Tropical island of Efate, Vanuatu and then the UK where I finished my education gaining a Degree in Design Technology and Business and a Diploma in Photography.
How would you describe your photography?
I love 'non set up' photography, just capturing that moment never to be repeated again. having lived abroad a lot, growing up in Indonesia and Vanuatu, foreign culture and travel are my favourite subjects.
What are some of your passions that influence your photography style?
Action sports, travel, events.
Where is your favourite place to shoot?
Teahupoo in Tahiti is one of my favourite places to shoot, the waves are amazing and the light is behind you all day.
Have you any trips or exciting projects coming up?
I've just got back from Australia photographing the World Surf League and I'm going to be mainly around Europe for the summer then Hawaii and Australia over the winter.
What is your preferred equipment to shoot on?
I only use Canon equipment as they are the best Auto Focus and FPS for sport photography.
Who are some photographers that you admire and respect?
I respect Photographers like Russell Ord who have the balls to water shoot massive waves in sharky waters and also the old school Magnum photographers.
If you could shoot with one person, dead or alive, who would it be?
Would love to go one of Rick Stein's trips shooting food and culture for his books.
