Where are you from?
Im from Sydney, Australia.
How long have you been shooting?
I got my first DSLR in 2013 and used it primarily for video, I only really got into shooting stills about 2 years ago.
What got you interested in shooting and what keeps your drive to shoot?
I started out just filming mates with a GoPro and making little edits in iMovie, then quickly realised videography was something I wanted to pursue. For some reason I never had interest in shooting stills up until 2 years ago when I started astrophotography, then slowly got into shooting bikes after that.
What is your favourite style of shooting?
I couldn’t pick one, I’d have to say BMX and Astrophotography, the two are completely different but I get the same enjoyment out of both. Its always a great feeling to bag an Astro shot I’ve been planning for a while. The BMX scene is so rad and theres so many good people, so there’s a big social aspect there, and it’s always fun to get creative shooting with riders who have a unique style/bag of tricks.
What gear are you shooting with? 
I’m shooting with a Canon 6D and a Canon 7d, with a kit 18-55mm f3.5, Canon 50mm f1.8, Samyang 24mm f1.4 and a Samyang 8mm Fisheye f3.5.
