Hi Peter! Tell us about yourself in two sentences - who are you?
Working in the construction industry and currently on the Crossrail Project I have had the amazing opportunity to access many rooftops of the London skyline and of course my camera comes with me. At home I am a dad, an organic gardener, a tech geek, innovator and Landrover enthusiast.
QWhat's the weirdest situation you've found yourself in while taking a photograph?
ATo celebrate the grand opening of a newly constructed road in London, I found myself directing and choreographing over 200 construction workers from a rooftop via mobile phone to line up to spell the word “OPEN” in order to take an aerial shot. It took over half an hour in the pouring rain but was extremely fun to do.
QWhat do you shoot on? What's your favourite set up?
AMy environment is normally quite dusty. I use a Nikon D7000 mostly and carry a Canon D550. Sigma 10-20mm and a Tamron 18-270mm. For tight spots or dirty environments at work I just love my Galaxy Camera pointy clicky.
QWhat's your number one tip for an aspiring photographer?
ADon’t forget to turn and face the crowd once in a while. It is sometimes a more interesting point of view.
