About me

I finished a photography degree at UWE in 2011. Following that I moved to start work as a photography assistant in Melbourne before moving in 2013 to work in London. This started with an internship with John Wright and his studio, Motel Studios (http://www.johnwrightphoto.com.) Here I learned about running and the organisation of a studio, producing and photography assisting. After completing the internship I continued to assist John as well as other fashion and celebrity photographers including Dan Kennedy, Alaistair Thain and Alun Calander. Alongside this, I worked for studios such as Biggs Represents who work with food and drink clients including McDonalds and Coco-Cola. From all of this, I learned a great understanding about studios and all the roles that go in to help produce the work, giving me great communication skills for talking to all those involved. After taking a position at Stay Still Productions (http://www.staystillproductions.com), I worked filming for behind the scenes on BBC British drama as well as producing shoots. This was a great opportunity to strengthen my organisational skills as well as communication and timekeeping. Spending so much time on the production of the shoots, organising travel and conversing with the other producers and crew members, really opened my eyes to how much I enjoy this role. After this, I took a job working for Brandbank, a company specialising in food and product photography. Here I was working alone keeping up to date with deadlines and work loads for an E-commerce studio. I also worked alongside others in the studio and the commercial team, to insure the clients were getting exactly what they asked for, and to a high standard. Part of my job was also supporting the international team. This meant I was sent to various countries including America, where I was assisting project managers setting up in America with new projects and with new clients including Walmart as well as working as a photographer in each one. This I enjoyed immensely, being such an integral part to a project, and keeping busy making sure to keep on top of multiple projects as well as working with a number of teams. Since moving back to London I have focused purely on production. I have worked as a production coordinator and on set producer for Rosco Production, helped with casting for Germaine Walker and recently worked as an in house producer for The Body Shop. When I first took on this role I was originally working as an assistant producer. By the end I would see through whole processes from moodboards, prep days where I would source backgrounds and props to directing on the day of the shoot. Afterwards I would also manage the post production, feeding back on images before completion.
