About me

22 year old aspiring photojournalist/documentary photographer. I very much enjoy taking photos of most things, fashion, street, art, landscape etc. I have proficient skill in Adobe Lightroom and Adobe Photoshop, I can spend hours endlessly editing my pictures or even for others after a photoshoot and model retouching. I studied History at King's College which has given me a strong writing ability, and argument forming capability. I hope to find something in which I can exercise both my creative, writing and analytical and editing skills.

History BA

King's College London

Sep 2013 - Jul 2016
  • Strand, London WC2R 2LS, UK
  • Graduated in July with a 2:1 from King's College London after doing a 3 year course on a wide range of different Historical topics. I would say that I mainly focused on more modern (20th century) History, looking at countries such as China to see the growth of their consumerist communist economy. I also looked closely at several cultural and societal aspects of History, looking at the growth of the arts, and the constant tool of the arts as a strong form of speech, which is something I resonate with in my own photo-documentative work.
