About me

I am a 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 customer service and also have gained a lot of experience within the creative industry. I am very experienced in using Adobe software (Photoshop/Lightroom/Bridge/Illustrator/InDesign) and I am PC 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.

Work history

Currently

Photo Editor

Brandbank

Oct 2016
  • Norwich, United Kingdom
  • Full Time
  • Working as a photo retoucher at Brandbank has taught me many valuable skills and I have processed images for many top clients including; Walmart, Sainsburys, Carrefour, Tesco (worldwide), Morrisons, and Asda. As a photo retoucher, I have to make sure every single image is to the highest quality whilst adhering to strict art directions and criteria (which can change depending on client). This includes removing dust, scratches and variables, removing reflections/camera holes, fixing broken packaging and colour matching each shot to ensure consistent images. I also have to run and create actions and alter and create new clipping paths, and have to make sure any image queries are dealt with as fast as possible. Within Brandbank, I consistently work at double the required image target (400+ images per day whereas daily target is 200) whilst retaining a low rejection rate (>1.6%). This performance has enabled me to take on new projects within the company and I am often called upon when time sensitive projects need completing.
