About me
I am a confident, creative and enthusiastic student moving into my third year at Ravensbourne University London. I have had some experience in the film and photography world, however I am very excited to gain even more as I progress through university. My main interests are stills photography, cinematography and colour grading.
Projects
  • Golden Hour with Zambian Princess
    Golden Hour with Zambian PrincessThis project was mainly a lighting experiment using evening sun and golden reflectors to enhance the golden hour aesthetic and trend. As well as this, I wanted to reinforce the confidence in women and send the message out that black lives matter and have always mattered.

  • Human Expression
    Human ExpressionSeries of different portraits representing different people’s ways of expressing themselves; could be through their fashion, their body art, or their hair etc. Young people nowadays are becoming more and more open to expression of themselves, feeling incredibly inspired by their surroundings and emotions. I want to create a series full of artistic imagery that portray the different expressions people go through.
  • Experimental Photography Project
    Experimental Photography ProjectWhilst travelling in the north of England I decided to create a project tying my love for portrait photography in with my surroundings.

    Freelance Video EditorFreelance
     - London, United KingdomFreelance
    At the beginning of summer this year I took on the role of a paid freelance editor. I edited using Adobe Premiere Pro working for a client who needed several promotional videos for their vitamin supplement company. Within this role I gained many skills; working with clients, working to a tight deadline, more knowledge of Adobe software such as Premiere Pro and Photoshop. I enjoyed this job very much and am looking for something very similar to persue during and after my time at university.
