About me

I am a 23 year old photographer, musician and creative. Photography is my main passion and over time I have built a large skill set. I have extensive experience within different spectrums of photography/e-commerce and have gained a lot of crucial skills within the creative industry. I am very experienced in using Adobe software (Photoshop/Lightroom/Bridge/Illustrator/InDesign) and I am PC/Mac literate, as well as having experience using Wacom Tablets. I am also an extremely fast learner and I love to meet and interface with new people. I am enthusiastic about my work, and I operate as a very punctual and dependable employee.
