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.
I'm London-based but also have my feet in Yorkshire. I love photographing people - I really enjoy getting personality back from my sitter. I'm formally trained at London College of Communication and London College of Fashion compounding my early learning and passion from Harrow School and the University of Newcastle Upon Tyne.
I'm a straightforward people person, laid back but have large amounts of energy and so enjoy a creative, fun and energetic shoot. I know what I like and what I don't and I don't mind saying so.
