Who or what inspired you to take up photography?

I WAS inspired by my mam – she always had and still has a camera with her wherever she goes.

What was your first camera?

A KODAK instamatic film.

What do you most enjoy photographing and why?

MOTORCYCLE racing and wildlife, they are my passions.

Your favourite picture?

I HONESTLY don't have a favourite, there have been far too many to choose from.

Your go-to kit at the moment?

MY Lumix G5 with Sigma 19mm art lens.

Do you spend much time on post production, and what software do you use?

NO – old school film background and technophobe!

Do you have any advice for budding photographers?

SHOOT what they like to look at, take images for themselves and not to impress others.
