May I Introduce: Sam Hiscox

Photographer Interview

Someone who shot campaigns for Nasir Mazhar and Malibu1992 doesn’t have a choice but to become one of our new favourite photographers! Sam Hiscox puts a lot of his own taste into his photos which is probably why they are so good and authentic. No matter how much Read more about his advice to anyone who likes taking pictures, his inspiration and what Black Sabbath has to with it. Sam Hiscox

When was the moment you realized that you wanted to become a photographer?
My parents told me that I was taking pictures or at least trying to since I was able to hold things. As I grew up my interests became more focused and I always wanted new cameras. I had my first opportunity to study at the age of 16/17 and I think that was the moment when I said to myself 'this is it'.  

How did you start with photography?
It seems to have been a very instinctive act when I look back at it. I can't explain why or how that really happened, it's just always been something I did since before I can even remember.  

How would you describe the style of your pictures? (Black Sabbath - Planet Caravan)

What's the best about being a photographer?
Meeting people, making stuff together and seeing new things.  

Which one of your pictures is most important to you?
The most important picture to me will be the most meaningless picture to anyone else. It’s probably one of the pictures I've taken at the top of Cheddar Gorge. It's my favourite spot in the world. Weirdly the importance doesn't have anything to do with what is in the image, it's completely about where it's taken and what that means to me. I'd love to say my most important picture is of a particular person but there are too many important people in my life and there have been too many poignant moments to choose from. 

Where do you take your inspiration from?
I don't actively seek inspiration, it's just whatever is in front of me. Someone talking, something I see, a drunk conversation, a picture on Instagram, a movie, a tree, anything, anywhere and everywhere.  

Who is your favourite photographer/artist?
Because of how inspired I felt after seeing their work when it was introduced to me for the first time: Corinne Day, Nan Goldin and Larry Clark.  

Where would you like to see your pictures published?
This could be a surprise to some people but National Geographic is pretty high up on my wish list. I'm sure you can guess the others.  

What are your plans for the future?
Books and films focusing on portraiture, fashion and documentary alike.  

What's your advice to anyone who likes taking pictures?
It's not about the camera!
