Haley Mchaffie is an Award winning travel and documentary photographer based in the UK.
She began taking pictures aged 18 inspired by watching her mother 's photography students developing prints in the dark room.
Haley took a break from her photographic practice, but it was a photo assignment in Nepal and the opportunity to document her father in Australia that brought her back behind a camera after a seven year hiatus.
When I travel from place to place I am visually inspired by almost everything I see around me. Exploring rich and diverse cultures is a privilege that I never take for granted. I choose to shoot on the streets which means my work is often left to chance and fate to determine my image making. Sometimes these moments are fleeting, and other times a brief exchange of words and gestures are made. Whatever the connection, I strive to photograph people with humility and respect.
