    Amazon Launchpad // Claire Harrison PhotographyThe morning is the always the most important part of the day for me. Making sure the connection from camera to computer is there, the lights are firing at the same time, rigging them safely and ensuring whatever I hand over is exactly what the photogrpaher and client agreed...this is all set up in the morning and then the content churned out during the day.

    Vashi // Benedict Morgan // Digital OperativeYou meet the nicest teams when you least expect it. During lockdown time I lucked out on assisting on Kat Perry with her production company. I delved straight in, working from home mostly like everyone else.

    Mo Gilligan // The New Review Cover // Suki DhandaI have assistted Suki for 5 years now. She was one of the first photographer's I ever assistted and it goes without saying I learnt so much from her. Things like, how to talk to clients, how to make the subject relax and pull the best out of them. Her eye for detail is immense and her high standards pushed me to be constantly better. The amount of adventures we've been on carry with them great memories. Seeing her juggle this with being a committed mum sets a clear example of how to navigate it

    Chinti & Parker // Ecom // Digital OperatorAs Digital Operator I am responsible for setting up and troubleshooting any camera or lighting faults. I bring with me a M1 Macbook Pro, Eizo monitor, powered hub, hardrives, tethers and card readers. We rent the lighting equipment from the studio. You can see below a picture of "my office" and a sample image of that day. Ecmommerce jobs are great days because we get to shoot alot of content in a short amount of time without doing any major changes to the set.
