About me


As a highly creative and organised graduate from Nottingham Trent University with First-class Honours in Photography, I am looking for employment to develop my knowledge and skills. My background in Photography has allowed me to develop an exceptionally keen eye for detail with skills in photo editing, image production and manipulation and the critical writing and understanding of Art & Design. With excellent skills in communication I have had experience working in a variety of fields. Having worked as a Photographer’s Assistant at ‘CAIA Image’, I gained technical knowledge and invaluable insight into commercial photographic practice. This involved responding quickly to needs within a fast paced environment and using initiative to solve problems as well as creativity. Similarly, whilst working in office environments I have thrived at providing great customer services and reliable organisation. One of my most notable achievements was organising a city wide Photography Festival in Nottingham, where I was instrumental in the branding, fundraising and final execution. Most recently I have been undertaking a Gallery Assistant Internship with the Bo. Lee Gallery, in which I have been a part of two contemporary art exhibitions as well as an exhibit at the London Art Fair. Working closely with the Gallery Director, I gained experience in every aspect of a professional art gallery from sales and promotion, to curatorial research and art handling. In short, I am a warm and enthusiastic person, driven in both my personal life and my practice. My mind is always buzzing with ideas and I relish the chance to learn new things.
