Hello, my name is Chiara (but you can call me Claire) I moved in London 3 years ago from sunny Italy and I've since worked as photo assistant and freelance photographer. My greatest joy working as photo assistant is to help other photographers to achieve their vision and to relieve them of some on the pressure the job always put on them. No job is too small or too big for me because everything you do on set, if done well, can make a difference for the better.
Am very enthusiastic, reliable, flexible and always keen to learn new skills and meet new people, speak a couple of languages (German, basic French and a little Swedish). Experience with, Digital SLRs, Medium Format (H3D & Mamiya RZ67 with leaf back), Large format cameras with film and digital backs. Work with Photoshop, Lightroom, CaptureOne, Phocus and Flexcolour software. Previously worked with Bowens lighting location and studio, Profoto and Elinchrome studio lights. Use photoshop, lightroom, and a mac every day. Good at helping with mail outs, etc as very proficient in Word/Excel/Powerpoint. Studied photography at the LCC and graduated with distinction in 2007. Would like to do more assisting, and am happy to muck in to help as much as I can. Would like to do more food & drink, portraits and lifestyle. Don’t mind early mornings and make a cracking cuppa too! :o)
Hello, I'm Jacob Schuhle-Lewis. I'm 31 and have years of experience in the photography industry, and several more in film and TV. I now work as an agency represented digital operator, and a photography/lighting assistant. I live in central London but have worked on jobs worldwide; from South Africa to Seattle. ·························································································································································································· On and off set I am courteous and professional. I try and think ahead to fix problems before they occur - but also listen to instruction. I remain calm under pressure and when faced with challenges. Despite my level of experience I try and keep learning, and take something new from nearly every job. ·························································································································································································· I have an extensive knowledge of light and lighting, including daylight, strobes and continuous. My time in moving image means I am equally at home with HMI, tungsten and kino as I am with flash. Although there's always new kit to learn I have a broad knowledge from speedlites to 10K arri heads, Bronocolor Super Paras, or BRIESE. ·························································································································································································· As a digital operator I am proficient with the major capture programs - Capture One, Lightroom and Phocus - and of course Photoshop. I also have a working knowledge of InDesign, Illustrator and After Effects. Of course the same goes for digital cameras; Hasselblad, Canon, Nikon Mimaya and PhaseOne. ·························································································································································································· If you're looking for an assistant with both still and video experience, I can operate several video cameras; Canon C300, the Sony F5 and RED Epic (among others).

Professional, amiable, conscientious, and attentive. I worked at Malcolm Ryan Studios (Wimbledon) for nine months before turning freelance back in February 2005. Since then I have worked on a huge variety of shoots, from ads for the likes of Ford, Lexus, The British Heart Foundation and Adidas, to editorial for Conde Nast, Wired, Car magazine, OK and FHM, and brochures for M&S and many of the major car manufacturers. I am particularly familiar with studio based car photography, and tungsten lighting, and have a massive amount of experience on location, both in the UK and abroad. Over the years however, I have worked on an increasingly diverse range of shoots with a variety of acclaimed photographers, and am confident in my ability to deal with pretty much any subject matter.
