Occasionally Asked Questions and Other Stuff
I use a Nikon D4 and a PhaseOne. I’m not sure that it makes a lot of difference as to what camera I use but I do know that some people get all excited about the PhaseOne. It has a huge chip which gives beautifully smooth tones and big files for use at very large sizes, like on billboards.
Do you have your own studio?
Yes. It’s a nice studio with pretty much everything you could want in a studio. Like couches and coffee. And of course some very exotic lighting.
Could you shoot a car in your studio?
If you can fit it in the lift or crane it through the roof, I don’t see why not.
No, I went to Tawa College which is the next best thing. My woodwork teacher, a cabinetmaker named Lloyd Bishop – lovely fellow – told me that I should either be a photographer or a cabinetmaker. Cabinetmaking still awaits.
What’s your favourite photo?
That’s hard. One that I particularly like is the shot I took of the Taj Mahal. All I could think when I was looking at it was how could I take something in a way that hadn’t been done a thousand times before. Then I saw the kids playing cricket. I quite like that one.
If I need a job done fast, can you do it?
I’ve just emailed you the shots.
How do you get on with people?
I get on with most people pretty well and my clients seem to think so as well.
