The knowledge and experience I've gained from capturing beautiful, powerful or strange moments in many corners of the world has influenced not just my personal work, but how I can collaborate with the professionals on bigger jobs. I shoot more from instinct than intent; these are a few favourite shots that I think have something a bit (and sometimes indefinably) special about them.
