References as assistant / Career
I am a photographer myself (edaked.cargocollective.com); I shoot at my home studio and most commonly out on the street and at events.
I left a full time job in a tech start-up in 2016 to pursue this career, thus I have had to learn a lot in a short space of time since I went freelance.
I also work as a studio assistant at Sunbeam Studios and as a freelance production assistant.
