NAME: Michael John Smith
HOME TOWN: Leicester, East Midlands, England
FAVOURITE COLOUR: Maroon - don't know why
HAPPIEST MOMENT: Definitely the birth of my first child which was also the scariest moment. All the doctors were pre-occupied with dealing with my wife and just thrust my new baby into my arms and pushed me through the doors into a room on my own.
FAVOURITE ARTIST: Both for his art and his approach to life, Kit Williams is definitely my favourite artist.
FAVOURITE BOOK: As a child, it was the Swallows and Amazons series by Arthur Ransome. Nowadays, I will take any good detective novel I can lay my hands on.
GUILTIEST PLEASURE: I think society and people nowadays feel too guilty about a lot of lifes pleasures, but you can't get much guiltier than a good rich chocolate cake with a glass of red wine.
WORST JOB: I once lasted three days washing up in a kitchen of a car manufacturer. It was the single most miserable and greasy thing I have been paid to do.
FAVOURITE DRINK: If there is no tea available, why not have a Gin 'n Tonic...
RANDOM FACT: Once I rolled over in my sleep and dislocated my shoulder...!
FAVOURITE PHOTOGRAPHY GENRE: Portraiture is by far my favourite. Head shots are where I excel, either natural light or using other lights.
