CH:  It varies depending upon the aesthetic of the project that I’m after to be honest. As much as I hate the word urban, I guess a lot of my work falls under that umbrella like word. The most significant body of work that I have finished is a book called Dreamers and it’s a documentation of my hometown’s (Bristol) Hip-Hop scene, this is probably the best representation of how I like to shoot.

I got to go to Paris and Brussels assisting the other week, that was pretty good fun. The project I’m currently shooting involves hanging out on a bridge taking portraits, pretty simple idea but it’s shaping up nicely. As far as work goes, I’ve been trying to juggling a million and one things at once, seems to be working at the moment which is good. Touch wood.

Enjoy your artistic/creative endeavors and make sure your doing them for the right reasons. tumblr_me5m6wxJbR1qg7zsco1_1280 tumblr_me5vnnEjQ31qg7zsco1_1280 tumblr_meezkhDOhL1qg7zsco1_1280What are you currently listening to/reading/ watching?

I listen to a lot of UK Hip-Hop, which not everyone will be familiar with, but also a handful of American rappers including Action Bronson and Joey Badda$$ which I’m enjoying at the moment. Just finished reading Don McCullin’s autobiography, which was a great read – he’s an amazing person. As most will know Breaking Bad finished a few weeks back, I’m still trying to fill this hole. tumblr_mfyw8n6E1h1qg7zsco1_1280 tumblr_mfz1u9faZN1qg7zsco1_1280  tumblr_mnvktqcw9p1qg7zsco1_1280Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

Earning a living out of photography alone and continuing to pursue interesting projects with fascinating people. tumblr_msiojrYZ481qg7zsco1_1280Who is or where does your inspiration come from? Any emerging artists to watch out for?

I’m going to throw a few names at you, James Arthur Allen, Tom Jamieson, Marco Kesseler, Theo Cottle aka Fantastic Ted and Jon Ross-Elliot, all of which are going to be producing some great work in the foreseeable future and continue to be an amazing support network.
