Hi all, if you are reading this you may be interested in me assisting you on a shoot, which is great!

The first thing I should mention is that I am a full time photographer in my own right (www.lensi.co.uk) so you may be asking why I would assist another photographer on a shoot? Well, why not? I have colleagues that assist me often and it suits me to do the same for others during the times I do not have my own shoots or I am not teaching.

I come with a range of experience in setting up lighting, Lightroom, Photoshop, InDesign, photography, being a digital assistant and so on.

I have been full time since 2011 and part time for a few years before that, before giving my full time job up; as such I also have a range of equipment from lenses, boom arms, bodies, portable lighting, too much to mention here that can also be hired in addition to me assisting on shoot, where I will arrive with energy, enthusiasm and knowledge!

Feel free to call, email, insta, facebook and all those other ways we now communicate (but please not texts, I do not always carry my work phone with me to receive texts, but calls are forwarded) if you would like to speak to me about your project.

Alex Ingram

Hey!

I'm Alex and I've been freelancing and assisting on various projects and shoots for the past 6 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 Apple, BBC, RNLI, Magnum, BJP, Dubarry, Sunday Times, The Telegraph, theprintspace, Burberry, Calvin Klein, The FT, The Guardian, ITV, NHS, Dubarry, Kent & Curwen, TFL, NYT, Tatler, Macallan, The Philippine Airlines, Adidas, Norwich City FC, England FC, Oracle, Ketel One, Rolex, Leica, The TrainLine, Channel 4, Max Mara, M&S, Mens Health, FIIT, Nespresso, Ink Publishing, Ballentines, House & Garden, ASOS, Amazon, Everything£5 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, architecture 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 photographer and clients needs.

The majority of my commercial 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 RB67. I have extensive experience using Profoto, Elinchrom, Broncolor 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, and please 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!
