Photo Time

Private Equity and Corporate Analytics Professor Simon Hirst has been a keen photographer since he was a teenager. The reason he loves photography – he says – is because photography captures moments that can never be exactly replicated ever again. Of course there are other reasons, such as the intuition involved and the technique, but he insists that it is the art of capturing the moment that he finds so compelling about photography.

The most amazing thing is that when you talk to Prof. Hirst the first thing you notice is that he is supremely competent when talking about serious stuff like finance, but you also notice that as soon as the conversation turns to photography his whole face changes, his voice as well… That’s passion for you!!!
