About me

I have been a specialist photographer for the past three years. In this time I have excelled in product photography, namely in celebrity figure photography. I have been praised by my peers for my skilled photography and outstanding results. Through the expert use of Photoshop, Lightroom, Mac OS and Windows, I was able to consistently deliver products that surpassed the expectations of both clients and superiors. Furthermore my experience in lighting, studio work, development and flash, all helped to further cement the respect of my peers and deliver consistently respected results with outstanding attention to detail. As a photographer I have gained a lot of experienced and confidence in various types of photography which I have become confident with both studio and on-location shoots. I am also proficient with portraiture, landscape and setting up studios with film and digital shooting using Canon and Nikon operating Systems, Mamiya 645, Hasselblad, and 4×5, as well as use of shooting 8×10 format systems. Throughout my career in photography I have faced many challenged and tight deadlines. I am organized to a high standard. Also working in such creative environment, I have had to work under pressure. Currently I am dealing with high profile clients and external IP companies connected to Merlin Entertainments. My time working on Cruise Ships we worked under tight leadership as well as producing high quality photographs for our guests. I have worked in many teams and work effectively to support and communicate to achieve our goals and objectives. A key part of my role has been the organization of the work requirements to deliver to our team and our high profile clients. More recently I have been elected the Health and Safety representative for my department to ensure safe working practice in all work activities. I am also a social media operator team member, involved in the content connected to the studio production team and making sure we keep up the confidentiality that we are expected to maintain. Along with having a flexible working attitude, I have developed a great capacity to think quickly in time of need and when circumstances develop and change. I also have learnt the essential skills of keep a cool head under the high pressure of working in a niche and ever developing industry. On many occasions having to achieve tight deadlines while keeping the high class standard of the business and the high standard I expect of myself.
