Stevie Wonder – I Believe (When I Fall In Love It Will Be Forever)  

As a photographer most of my working time is spent either shooting, or setting up shoots and editing images. This is one of my favourite songs to edit images to, looking at photos and letting my mind drift to Stevie's voice is heaven.


Beyonce – Crazy In Love


I am sorry, but this is STILL one of my favourite songs to play when I am taking portraits. It gets us all gigging around and it makes me smile. I am sure some of my team want me to get over it, but.... hee hee.

Talking Heads – Heaven  

This is one of those songs I love to listen to when I am putting together ideas for a photo shoot. It melts my heart and makes me feel warm inside.


The Strokes – Reptilia


This song makes me want to bop around and head bang.


Yeah Yeah Yeahs – Zero

Like the energy in this song, like the whole album but this song gets me in the mood to pick up my camera.

Gossip – Melody Emergency  

I recently shot a short moving image piece featuring Beth Ditto (singer of Gossip) and this is the piece of music that we cut the piece to. I love her voice, I love her smile, she is infectious and completely punky.

John Prine and Iris Dement – In Spite Of Ourselves  

I love a bit of country music, and this song makes me swing and sway and smile.

Lorna Bennett – Breakfast In Bed  

This reggae track has feminine emotion in the vocal, it is one of the first reggae songs I remember hearing as a child and it has stuck with me ever since.

Wings – Nineteen Hundred and Eighty Five  

When I am taking photos I lean towards songs that make me want to bop around. This one fits the bill and I also love it cause it has such a raw sound quality to it. Also, it makes me happy when the backing vocals come in and I can hear a bit of Linda.

Eminem – Lose Yourself  

Listening to Eminem makes me intrigued.
