I’m generally a very positive person, seeing the brighter side of every situation. I’m also currently in my senior years of high school and very keen to graduate and explore the world. When I’m not taking photos I enjoy producing music or making other artworks to keep my creative juices flowing, but if I’m not creating or doing school work I like to go out with mates or relax and watch some Netflix take my mind off creating so I’ll have a fresh mind every time I go for a shoot.
What gear do you use?
What type of photography are you into?
I used to do a lot of landscape photography along with nature and wildlife, however, over the past year, I have been shooting a lot of portraits and a bit of street here and there.
How did you start photography? What inspires you?
I have always been a creative person, from building cities of Lego to creating artworks and doing music. Around three years ago I suddenly found the love for videography and photography as I saw it as a way for me to really push my creativity and imagination and capture the beauty around me through my perspective. Seeing other photographers and creators, in general, create stunning images inspires and motivates me to push myself to get better. Another thing that inspires me is seeing all my @sydney.creators mates create and learning from each other. having a community of photographers like them really helps push me to create.
Top 3 photo locations?
My top three locations in Sydney to shoot at the moment are Bradleys Head in the north shore of Sydney, Wynyard station in the city, and Barangaroo.
Top 3 photo/editing tips?
My three tips for taking photos and editing is, use a manual focus primarily (especially for portraits), try to keep you ISO as low as possible to reduce grain and noise in your photos and lastly when editing in lightroom start by playing around with the light settings till you find the perfect exposure, and use the Radial Gradient tool and Graduated Filter to edit specific spots in your photo instead of the whole photo.
What has been your most memorable experience?
My most memorable experience was probably when the Melbourne boys Hayden Pederson, 7th Era, and North borders came to Sydney and held a photo walk where 200 people came to all take photos together. Meeting the boys, who are some of my biggest inspiration’s in photography, was definitely my most memorable experience and it was what lead me to meet so many like-minded creative people in Sydney like everybody in @sydney.creators
If you had super powers, what would yours be?
If I had my own superpower, I would want to be able to teleport to anywhere in the world so I could take photos wherever I would like.
What have you been doing at home during this time?
During quarantine, I have started my own YouTube channel where I have been uploading videos about my recent shoots as well as other videos to do with photography. I have also been watching a lot of Netflix and playing video games with my mates which I usually don’t do.
