UK Photographer of the year was a process that spanned over 10 months back in 2008. This was the winning image of the competition, based on the movie title The Haunting. Practical Photography magazine called it "The best winning image in their 40 years of publication".
It's an extremely personal photograph, not just because it launched my career but also because it featured my aunt and late father, Eddie McCann. It was shot in a 16th century Irish cottage just outside Belfast. The only thing that was moved in the room was the mirror my aunt was looking into. The scene was lit entirely with natural light.
