Are you a full-time photographer?
I have a day job and normally I photograph whenever I have time, meaning I don’t always carry a professional camera with me. But my iPhone is always with me and it really comes in handy when I need to capture the right moment.
Are there other photographers who inspire you?
There's Chris Burkard, who is from California. Chris owns a photography and production studio, and is constantly travelling. He’s literary always somewhere shooting magnificent outdoors, often on a commission by big brands. I love the way he sees nature and I like the way he edits his work. I think his entire crew works on the content: he makes mind-blowing photos, then communicates his vision to his team and they together create those beautiful images we see. There’s also Alex Strohl, yet another amazing person with outdoor-focused photography. He travels with his girlfriend and collaborates with Land Rover and sport brands. Needless to say, the places he explores and the content he creates is very inspiring.
Travel photography may be risky, how do you deal with that?
Yes, it gets risky at times: you may have to get to places people normally don’t go to, climb a mountain, photograph with your feet dangling off a cliff. Sometimes you have to sacrifice comfort for the sake of a great image, as all those self-planned trips are quite unpredictable - you might have to sleep in a car or take an ice-cold shower outside. But this is all part of an adventure and you just accept it, although some people might call them health and safety hazards. But I try to rely on my gut feeling, know when to push my limits and do some crazy things when I have to.
