Hello Aaron, thank you for participating in this interview, let's start with a common question, what are your favourite genres of photgraphy?
I like portrait and wedding the most. Capturing timeless special moments really give me a buzz.

What equipments do you use?
Most of the time I use a pair of Canon EOS 5D Mark II's combined with prime 'L' glass, but I also have the amazing Fuji X100 and Lomo Lubitel 166+. I also inherited an Olympus OM-1 from my Grandad which gets used from time to time.

In your experience as a wedding photographer, what are the taboos/things to avoid doing at a wedding photoshoot?
Most the the couples I work with have the same creative vision as me, before each wedding I have at least one consultation where we talk about themes and styles. The common things to avoid are overly processed images and a generic set of images which don't reflect the couples I work with. Keeping things fresh is a vital part of my business model, its important to keep on-top of trends but not to become a slave to them.

We love your Matchstick Men photos! The thought of turning an inanimate object into a character has a sort of an appeal to it. Will we be seeing more of it in the future?
Absolutely! The idea came from a magazine which explored macro photography and matchsticks. I took the idea to a new place and even set up a few pictures using my own actual hair. I love the simplicity of those little guys, I think they work really well.

Any upcoming projects or work we should look forward to?
I'm working on some levitation pictures right now and getting ready to progress a set of winter coastal landscapes, just need to wait for the snow!

Finally, what would you do if you won a million dollars?
I'd give a load to Greenpeace, pay off the mortgage and travel the world taking photos of people.
