Interview / Joe Nigel Coleman

Where are you right now ?

At home in Hackney, London.

When and where were you born?

8th May 1987. Byron Bay, Australia.

What do you prefer to have in your viewfinder?

Whatever seems to be tickling my eyes at the time.

Give me 3 scents you like.

Rain, jasmine & roasting peppers.

What cameras do you use ? (and do you make any computer modification on your photos ?)

I am mainly using a Canon AE-1 & a Contax T2. I use Lightroom to edit my photos after they’ve been scanned.

 

Can you tell us about your current projects or your plans for the future?

I’m moving from London back to Australia in the next month so I’m currently just getting a few shoots in before I go. I’m hoping to release a few zines later this year and a book at some stage next year.

When did you start photography ? (and is it your full-time job ?)

I started taking photos about three years ago, and although I get a bit of work doing photo related stuff, it definitely doesn’t pay the bills.

Do you remember your best trip (I mean travel/ road trip/… ) ?

I find it hard to pick a favorite, but a road trip I went on with a few friends through New Zealand in 2010 is a stand out. Photos from that trip can be seen in the album “road” on my website.

And finally, what are you going to do just after answered this last question ?

Make a cup of tea then head out to meet some friends for a gig tonight.

Thanks a lot for your answers Joe :)
