With 20 years experience working on a variety of picture desks within the media industry I have developed excellent commissioning, negotiating, and picture researching skills combined with the ability to work to tight deadlines, within budget, in a stressful environment.
Sourcing images from PR websites and agents for images to illustrate TV shows on Discovery and National Geographic channels. I also head the team for building a database of celebrity images for client usage. This involved designing a style guide for the images, liaising with the most suitable picture libraries, and training staff in the process.
I started off selling Macs and Apple Products to customers and then got promoted to mobile device repairs and problem solving. From there I started training members of the public on how to use their Macs or iPhone/Ipad.
Sourcing images for the Autotrader website to illustrate stories being written by editors and topical photo galleries.
Sourcing images for a series of magazines under the Which? umbrella through either picture libraries and agencies, or commissioning photographers (around 30 commissions per month). I regularly sourced new picture libraries and negotiated very competitive rates with them as I was responsible for the images budget in excess of £120k p/a.
Sourcing a database of celebrity images to be used on one of the Sky TV channels. I also covered annual leave for members of staff, sourcing images for the Sky website.
Maternity cover contract, sourcing images for the Daily Mail and This Is Money websites. Liaising with writers to source the most appropriate images to illustrate their stories, and watching the live feeds for images of breaking stories.
