About me

My name Is Charlie Benjamin from Stoke Newington, Hackney and I am studying a BA in Design for Art Direction at LCC. I am very interested in fashion and would love to gain some experience in the editorial part of your company. Any experience whether it be on set for a shoot or fashion film to behind the scenes researching, I would love the chance to work with your company as it would really help me get to grips with specifically what I want to do as well as understand more about the industry. I am ultimately looking for internship opportunities between June and august, but if that is not an option a week or two of work experience would be great. Previously I have worked on the set of a short films and music videos as a runner and art department assistant and I have members of the team who can vouch and say i am extremely determined, hardworking and confident in working with time constraints to ensure the process and final product goes the best it could. I am 19 and have great knowledge of London and good contacts hanging around with many photographers and young creatives. I feel I can offer a fresh viewpoint coming from female biracial millennial having grown up around and still growing up in London’s current climate. But i am willing to give up a lot of time toward this project leading up to that point. Please don’t hesitate to contact me on this email: charliesbenjamin55c@yahoo.com Or my mobile 07446418682 My art Instagram is @cbenj_art - https://www.instagram.com/cbenj_art/ if you would like to see any of the work I have done and I have attached my cv below.
