About me

Photo Stylist with over 5 years' experience within the fashion industry in Paris, London, Barcelona. With a background in Communications and having completed a course in Visual Merchandising, I went onto work in e-Commerce at ASOS. Since then, I have gained solid experience in photo production (catalogue, lookbook, editorials) with global leading brands. I’m currently seeking freelance roles in London, within fast-growing companies, with qualitative photo shoots.
