Tell me a little bit about your selection of photos? I have been lucky enough to travel around the world to attend some amazing parties and experience once in a lifetime moments, which I am forever grateful for. This said, as a photojournalist no matter how beautiful (and sometimes bizarre) the situations I was thrown into were, I always seemed to come back to the close up images – the personal shots of people just lost and dancing rather than the destination, the main booking, or whatever. Club events look right until you get down to the bare bones of the night and the people, and I have tried to reflect that in my selection here.
