References as assistant / Career

I started in the photo industry by doing studio assisting at Snap studios (now part of JJlocations).
I rapidly moved to the lighting rental house ThreeFourSnap to learn about the basics of lighting and camera equipment, whilst making my first contacts with other, more experienced assistants.
By then, I was getting my first jobs on set whilst still expanding my knowledge of gear through lighting companies.

I have been expending my knowledge of the trade ever since, whilst working on set and keeping a curious mind in better ways of lighting all things.
