“Of course, any of the cre­ative in­dus­tries are a night­mare, and it’s not helped by the fact that a ma­jor driv­ing force in the cre­ative process is the spur of self-doubt, to do bet­ter, to be bet­ter. But to be bet­ter you have to ac­cept that the work is never good enough, which is not great for a sense of self-es­teem.”


“The sac­ri­fices [in my work] come from be­ing free­lance, the un­plannable work­flow that ne­ces­si­tates mak­ing hay as and when the sun shines. The in­evitable ca­su­al­ties are friends and family, the missed birth­days, an­niver­saries, hol­i­days and the count­less missed din­ners and par­ties. But the re­wards are huge; I get to do some­thing I love, with new chal­lenges ev­ery day, and that hope­fully makes me a bet­ter per­son to be around when I am there. I have an in­cred­i­bly un­der­stand­ing wife, and a dog who re­mem­bers me oc­ca­sion­ally.”


“There are all sorts of chal­lenges on a shoot, some of them tech­ni­cal, and the an­swer to that is sim­ply that you need to know your sh*t. And the other is about cre­at­ing a bub­ble of trust around you and your sub­ject, so that the magic of col­lab­o­ra­tion can hap­pen. The end re­sult has some­thing that be­longs nei­ther to you or your sit­ter, but both of you, and is hope­fully greater than the sum of its parts.”
