Know How:

I’ve been working in the photographic industry since 2008. In that time I’ve held both freelance and full time positions as a photo assistant, digital operator, studio manager and production manager. I am a Phase One Certified Professional and equally experienced and capable with lighting and digital work.

Before moving to London in 2015 I was based between South Africa and Germany.
Over the years I have worked on projects across all genres from still life studio shoots to on location outdoor projects in difficult environments. I most enjoy advertising, portraiture, lifestyle, travel and documentary

work. I’m can provide a list of references on request.

This is summary of the equipment I have most experience with:

CAMERA:
Phase One (Certified Professional). Hasselblad. Canon. Nikon. Sony. Mamiya. Pentax. Fuji

DIGITAL:
Capture One (Certified Professional). Lightroom. Photoshop. Bridge. Mac OS. Wacom graphics tablet

LIGHTING:

EQUIPMENT RENTAL:

I also have Camera Kit (Nikon D850 + lenses) available.

References as assistant / Career

I believe that doing my job well allows a photographer to put more of their energy into making great pictures while knowing that the technical details and everything outside the viewfinder is taken care of - whether its lighting, digital workflow or logistics.

Please feel free to give me call if you'd like to discuss any projects or have any questions.
