1. Liam Madsen: What mediums and subjects do you work with?

    Rohan Anderson (Sydney, NSW): I work predominantly with digital photography and digital manipulation. In regards to subjects, I really enjoy experimenting with long exposure of cityscapes, landscapes and lighting. I also do a lot of live music photography around Sydney.

    LM: Did you always want to be an artist?

    RA: I always had a passion for imagery, but I didn’t intend to be an artist, I just started taking pictures and it progressed to this point. I’m still very weary about using the term ‘artist’, despite what people say.

    LM: Who and/or what inspired you to take your practice more seriously?

    RA: Originally I just shot with a little canon point-and-shoot and my mum pushed and critiqued my work. When I decided to take things a little more seriously and invest in some serious camera gear, my parents and friends were really encouraging.

    LM: Where are you currently employed and how has that had an impact on your practice?

    RA: I work at a Sydney audiovisual integration company, as part of my role I photograph projects for the company profile; this really helped expand my skills in architectural photography. On top of that, I also shoot for two Australian media outlets, photographing live music events; this is where my passion lies. I recently shot the Groovin’ the Moo music festival, Bernard Fanning, Of Monsters and Men and the Australian Independent Music Awards.

    LM: How do you keep yourself inspired?

    RA: Recently I haven’t had much time for personal projects outside of work and uni. The only recent personal project was a recent trip to New Zealand and the Sydney in Motion series as part of a university assignment. You could say my recent works are determined by my lifestyle, rather than actively seeking out projects.

    LM: Do you have any big plans for 2014?

    RA: I’m hoping 2014 will be a big year, I’m looking at shooting a lot more live music, hopefully Soundwave and Big Day Out. On top of this, I’m going to be looking into hosting a few solo and shared exhibitions around the Sydney and Newcastle area. Overall, I’m hoping 2014 will be my biggest year to date, in regards to photography.
