I hate early mornings, I really am rubbish at getting up, but photography is about challenges and opportunities to learn so when I was invited along to work with Andy Farerr and David Clapp to learn more about photographing the New Forest, colour management and to experiment with a tilt shift lens for the first time, I had to give it a go… arriving at 3.30am and lectures before a drive through the forest for sunrise… was really out of my comfort zone.
