Hi Grant! Tell us about yourself in two sentences - who are you?
I'm a 37-year-old, Scottish macro photographer who has lived in Christchurch, New Zealand for the past 13 years. I've been into photography for around 5 years now.
QWhat's the weirdest situation you've found yourself in while taking a photograph?
AI went out at night last summer in my own garden to get some spider shots in the dark. I was wearing a headlight and after a few minutes I heard one of my neighbours shouting over the fence at me saying he was about to call the police as he thought I was a burglar about to break in to the house! I quickly calmed him down when I explained I was the house owner and that I was taking some shots of the spiders!
QWhat do you shoot on? What's your favourite set up?
AI travel lightly. I only ever use a Nikon D7100 with a Nikon 105mm macro lens. All shots are handheld in natural light.
QWhat's your number one tip for an aspiring photographer?
A Never give up, we all have lots of bad shots every time we shoot. Keep practicing and your ratio of good shots versus bad shots will eventually get better!
