Daniel Balica

I have an animated enthusiasm for photography and working with clients, something I have been actively engaged with during my university degree, my photographic practice and my assisting experience. I am very experienced in photographic studios and working on location, which I have demonstrated in my campaign work with Doodle Do, a London Childswear Brand, for whom I have photographed 3 campaigns. Working with Doodle Do has allowed me to creatively explore fashion photography and my directorial skills as well as my ability to work with young models. During my time shooting with Doodle Do I have worked on a range of studio and location shoots so I am very comfortable transitioning between the two. From Summer 2014 to Spring 2016 I’ve been working with Lumiere London, a photographic studio. Here I have the opportunity to work with their clients and help them achieve their creative vision. One of my roles was to manage the bookings for the studio spaces, liasing with a range of people, from photographers, producers and corporate clients. This gave me extensive experience of holding an organisational role. I would also liaise between the other creatives to help our clients receive the best experience with Lumiere London. Whilst I undertook my role as photographer, retoucher and 1st assistant for Carlos Lumiere I was able to meet with people from all around the world and of all ages. This is something I carry forward in my own practice as I can enthusiastically and inclusively work with a diverse group from a range of all backgrounds and ages. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time working as part of their team and references will be able to confirm that I was an asset to their company.

Morten Watkins

Alex Ingram

Hey! I'm Alex and I've been freelancing and assisting on various projects and shoots for the past 4 years. I have extensive experience both on location and within a studio environment, with my own work focusing primarily on portraiture and photojournalism. I have worked with a variety of clients, such as BBC, RNLI, Magnum, BJP, Dubarry, Sunday Times, The TrainLine, Channel 4 and AirBnB to name a few. I have worked with a wide range of photographers on a number of different shoots, working in advertising, corporate, still life, editorial, commercial and lifestyle. I have gained a huge amount of knowledge and experience during my time assisting, and am incredibly confident working with an array of different camera and lighting systems, and I am able to apply the knowledge and the skills I have learnt to any shoot. I have extensive knowledge of file treatment, colour management and post production, and how to prepare files to a professional standard, whether that be for print or viewed digitally. I understand the importance of working quickly, professionally, and efficiently during a shoot, and work relentlessly to ensure that everything runs as smoothly as possible, and to anticipate and meet the photographers needs. The majority of my editorial work has been shot with a Mamiya Leaf or Canon 5D mkiii, whilst my personal work takes a more traditional route, often shooting 120 on either a Hasselblad or Mamiya 645. I have extensive experience using Profoto, Elinchrom and Bowens lighting kits, and am able to supply technical help throughout the shoot to ensure that all equipment runs efficiently. I am a confident Digi-op and retoucher, have a clean UK driving license and am available to travel further afield from London if required. Thank you for taking the time to view my profile, check out my website to see a selection of my work. Feel free to contact me at any time. I look forward to working together in the future!
