About me

I am a first class graduate of photography from the University of the West of England. My work has been featured within the British Journal of Photography, as well as Fotoroom, Loupe and The Heavy Collective. I have previously interned as an Archive Assistant with the internationally renowned Arnolfini Centre of Contemporary Art and have worked multiple administrative jobs in the past. My skill and knowledge of working within photographic studios has been proven whilst assisting other professional photographers on shoots for established clients. I have acted as editor for publications as well as designing visual identity for both web and print publications. I have critical experience within account administration whilst working as a freelance financial assistant for Cardiff Rigging Services. I am an upbeat, determined, social and goal oriented individual that is looking to apply my proven determined work ethic and passion to new opportunities. I am currently seeking, full/part time work, freelance work and internship opportunities in London.
