“It's important to enter competitions. Because I'm now focusing on fashion, I find that I don't have much work to enter for a lot of them, as they are more conceptual or portraiture orientated, but if you're doing that kind of work, or documentary photography, then there are so many you can enter. Some of the prizes are really worthwhile, as are the exposure you get, and the people you meet."
