    BodyThe body is a beautiful piece of artwork that should be celebrated and loved. This collection of works is centered around body positivity. I hope that by viewing my work it empowers people to love themselves. Everything is in black and white to give the images a soft delicate feel. I’ve added small amounts of glitter to the 3 self portraits to highlight the shape and curves of the body making the images shimmer when viewing. There is no facial features shown in these photos to prevent any perso

    Knightsbridge, London, UKFull Time
    Working as a photographer, photographing various artwork & objects that are going to auction. Images are used both online & in their catalogues. Everything is photographed on a Hasselblad camera tethered to Mac computer using Phocus software. Once the images are edited they are then uploaded on to Bonhams A3 system. I work specifically with the following departments: Jewellery, Watches, Fashion & Handbags and Homes & interiors. I previously worked with Pictures, Prints & multiples, Books & Manuscripts & Entertainment Memorabilia. I’ve also shot some furniture. I shot model shots for Jewellery to show scale & marketing shots for handbags for them to use on social media to promote upcoming sales. I produce front cover shots for Watches which includes a close up of a watch face lit dramatically with a textured background and sometimes a prop. Jewellery is shot with minimal reflections. The images are brightened & colours enhanced. Everything has a small drop shadow. The objects I photograph vary in scale. If the object is unable to come the studio i'll go and shoot it in its location, if the object is inside this involves taking a small lighting set up with me Artwork is photographed framed & unframed with balanced lighting and colour checked. 3D objects & clothes are photographed with balanced lighting, drop shadow on a white background & colour checked. Postproduction is carried out on all photos making sure everything is colour corrected, cropped & if there is a white background that it is ‘255’. Putting together installation shots for the Prints department on request. Pieces of artwork edited into a fake backdrop/setting to give a more realistic way of viewing artwork in the catalogue
