Matt Pinner, Shed Artist of the Week.

What first drew you to photography? 
My Grandad left me his tripod in his will. I thought it was good out of respect to buy a camera. I fell in love and never looked back!

Tell us what you enjoy most about your own work, and what has inspired you recently.
What I enjoy most is being outdoors and the freedom. What I most like about my own work is getting the feedback even the negative comments as they help me the most. What has inspired me most recently is watching my work go global.It’s an amazing feeling watching one photo hit every news paper in the UK and EU and being my own work is something I’m really proud of.
Do you have bursts of creativity – and when/where are you most creative?
What are the most important elements of a successful photo? A successful photo is the one you have to be out here to take. You ‘miss every photo you don’t take’.
