Assistant Overview**April 2022 - Paternity break until end May 2022**
Hi there. I'm Shiv, a digital operator and lighting assistant based in London. I've been working within the photography industry since 2008 when I started out at Spring Studios.
Having worked as a digital operator for over 10 years I have extensive experience with Capture One, Phocus, Adobe Photoshop, Lightroom and Bridge. I frequently work with Hasselblad, Phase One, Canon, Nikon, Fujifilm and Contax cameras.
I often supply and use my own MacBook Pros, Eizo screens, work stations and cabling on Advertising shoots to provide multiple viewing points to aid social distancing and client comfort. This can be wireless or wired and I can tailor the package to your budget and location.
Although I no longer actively retouch, I have in the past retouched campaigns for Ikea and Subway as well as portraits of celebrities and various editorials. On-set comping and rough retouching to show clients quick mock-ups isn’t a problem.
I have experience creating lighting plans from references with flash or continuous lighting using Profoto, Elinchrom, Briese, Broncolor, Strobe, Tungsten, HMI, Kinoflo and LED panels in the studio or on location using generators.
