References as assistant / Career
I have been a Freelance Photographic Assistant and Digital Operator for over ten years. So I have the skillset for both areas. Although I'm based in East London I work both nationally and internationally, and I'm equally happy in the studio or on location.
I have a wealth of experience working in: Advertising, Corporate and Editorial; whether it’s still life, automotive, interiors, landscape, portraits and fashion.
I enjoy working with a range of photographers including Klaus Thymann, Ben Stockley, Nick Meek, Benedict Redgrove and Spencer Murphy.
