On a personal level, I bring a lot of energy and enthusiasm and really enjoy the experience of being present and supporting the team for a great
end result. I pride myself on being highly motivated, reliable and trustworthy and treating people, equipment and my surroundings with care and respect at all times. I'm practical, hands-on with a 100% 'can do' attitude, and have the ability to remain calm under pressure. I don't shy away from anything, am willing to work really hard, and am a fast learner who only needs to be shown something once to remember. Accordingly, I am confident I can be a real asset to your studio.
References as assistant / Career
I am a freelance photographer with four years of photography assistant/studio manager experience, who is now specifically seeking further practice working alongside passionate fashion and lifestyle advertising photographers.
I originally trained in photography working two years full time at the studio of photographer and artist Marcus Lyon at The Glassworks in London, where I gained a solid set of skills for using a range of equipment to achieve different lighting and effects in the studio and on location with a focus on portrait and reportage photography. I have assisted with all aspects of planning, organising and executing advertising campaign shoots for high profile clients as diverse as Virgin Atlantic, International Hotel Group, G4S, GlaxoSmithKline, and Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. These have all been informative to my development as a photographer and I am now keen to expand on those experiences.
I have an undergard in Philosophy & History of Art and a Master's in Sociology.
