Hi Julian! Tell us about yourself in two sentences - who are you?
I’m an award-winning editorial, commercial and documentary photographer living on the coast in the beautiful county of Suffolk. I have a huge passion for the way I make my living and consider myself extremely lucky to meet so many wonderful people throughout my photographic work.
QWhat's the weirdest situation you've found yourself in while taking a photograph?
AAn instrumental moment in my life has been an epic bike ride which saw me cycle from the UK to Rwanda, through 14 countries and cover 5,500 miles, arriving just 64 days later. This led to an interesting body of work and ultimately provided me with some inspirational and somewhat moving images. Perhaps one of the most memorable was arriving in a small village in North Sudan - after cycling 147 miles through the desert I stopped at a house where a large Sudanese man cooked me eggs, while I shot images of his son against their beautiful blue walls.
QWhat do you shoot on? What's your favourite set up?
AMy favourite gear is a Nikon DF – certainly for travel material. But I will shoot on anything from phones to top spec gear – whatever is at hand.
QWhat's your number one tip for an aspiring photographer?
AJust get out there and shoot – forgot about gear – find something you love and enjoy shooting.
QWhat's the one thing you love most about Picfair?
APicfair first appealed due to the ease of use and pretty instant results. You get a sense of community and are made to feel a worthy part of the sales process of photographer to market
