About me

I am a creative stylist with nearly 3 years in the industry, working on client facing projects and specialising on a wide range of subjects; from interiors to children’s shoots. This is on top of my previous experience as a production assistant and a degree in photography.   I am proactive, organised, and work best under pressure to surpass my client’s expectations. I am able to work as part of a team or succeed on my own, with creative flair and ability to multitask on the spot.   I am looking to secure a challenging role and increase my knowledge and skill set on the job, therefore becoming a key member of a team in which I can build a great career with.

    • As one of the main creative stylists, I play a key role in gaining new clients on test shoots and working with all existing clients, on everything from castings right up to campaigns and location work. I especially enjoy building relationships with clients where I am confident with advising and discussing ideas, often taking on a more demanding role focusing on creative direction. Also creating mood boards for larger campaign shoots, taking into consideration the brand and shoot concept. Regularly liaising with production and working with them to overcome issues, ensuring a smooth shoot and improving future shoots and briefs.
