Over the last few years i have been working for another underwater camera specialist based in the centre of London. Using skills from my previous employment i moved into a much more face to face role within the company's London showroom. I felt this move was a good choice in allowing me to develop how i dealt with customers, both professional and amateur, as it means i have to be able to rely (and be confident in) on my knowledge of not only all the complexities of underwater camera systems but as well as the cameras themselves. I’ve recently taken on the role of managing the stores ebay and social media accounts, responding to customers and making sure all items that items that need to be listed are photographed, organised and listed correctly and that any content posted on social media is in keeping with the company's image whilst trying to build up a decent following on both twitter and facebook. i also partially manage the stores website (based on magento) making sure orders come through successfully and editing any pages when needed, including photographing items and creating content for the homepage. A smaller part of my role is also creating some of the print adverts featured in diving publications in the UK.
For the past few years, in conjunction with my other job, I have been building my career as a professional photographer. I am lucky enough to have had Red Bull as my main client, and have constantly delivered high quality work both on a national and International level. As well as photography, I do get some influence in pre planning of events - critical to ensuring the photos from the event show branding to Red Bull Inter- national standards.This involves working with members of the events marketing team on site evaluation, pre-event shoots and mock ups. I also manage my own website, which is built upon the wordpress platform, using many key features and html as well as additional web monitoring applications such as Google analytics to make sure i'm hitting my target audience, posting regular updates and always trying to put a fresh look on it!
