Who/what inspired you to pick up a camera?
I originally wanted to go to drama school and act, but found it was easier and quicker to tell a story through my camera, documenting life and people, than through performing somebody else’s script.
We have a HUGE crush on your work, but what photographer do you crush on the most?
Elliott Erwitt – an American advertising and documentary photographer. He’s known for his black and white candid shots of ironic and absurd situations with everyday settings.
Who is your dream subject to get in front of the lens?
If I could have anyone, I would rather have a photographer in front of my lens so I think it would be Tim Walker, my childhood favourite storyteller.
What exciting projects are you working on at the moment?
A documentary on 21st century naturism.
Oooh how exciting – that is certainly different to fashion, what originally drew you to the naturists as a subject?
The celebration of the human body and looking at alternative lifestyles in 21st century Britain.
Dr.Lipp loves a good nipple tease – how does being naked make you feel?
How do you use your Dr.Lipp?
Naturally, it’s the only make up I wear when naked…
