About me
Over the course of my professional career, I have built my reputation around providing an efficient valuable service to my employers and colleagues. As a former model agent and current Senior / Creative Photographic Producer, I have a keen eye for detail and understating of the creative process coupled with studio, eCommerce, casting and vast international and UK location shoot experience. My extensive experience managing, organising and moving people to succeed, coupled with deep-rooted, hands-on production experience and creative vision, has opened doors for me to evolve as an emerging Art Director, most recently with the MI OLA brand. From sourcing luxury, high-end fashion and commercial images to negotiating great rates and maintaining strong relationships with service providers. Successfully creating varied images to tick activity across the board for advertising, E-Commerce, social and digital media platforms takes experience. I understand what it takes to make a successful production, so scrutiny to find and do the best is always my aim. This is where constant research and the power of negotiation is crucial. I am one to also do my due diligence and research internationally with key fashion contacts to bring the next big name to the table. I have managed and proven time and time again, I have the ability to get more from agents across the board than most. I feel my castings and productions are always positive and fruitful due to the fact I have long standing relationships with agency CEO’s. This means I go straight to the top when I need talent or sourcing artwork.
