I am an aspiring creative photographer looking for an opportunity to build on the skills and network I’ve established through building my academic and freelance portfolio. Having graduated from Ravensbourne in 2015, I have spent the last year gaining experience in all departments at The Fold - a fast-growing, entrepreneurial fashion company. I have strong problem solving, organisation and planning skills and was recently awarded a promotion on this basis. At heart, I am a creative fashion and portrait photographer and have gained extensive experience in designing & directing my own shoots over the last 5 years (including post-production / retouching). My work has regularly been published in several well-respected international magazines, and includes some commissioned look books.Locked Pro Plan feature

Current role involves PR & Marketing (organising and logging samples for press events, assisting on-set with look book and eCommerce shoots, maintaining image library). I took the initiative to learn as much about the various departments and roles as I could, and as a result my responsibilities quickly grew to include: Production (organising and labeling samples, creating spec sheets and colour/fabric swatch boards). I was rewarded a promotion in August 2016
