    These include: • Working closely with an international company, Hand Point Ltd, to rebrand their online presence. These included taking product photographs, as well as lifestyle and location photographs to enhance their online presence. • Became a Sports media activator with Anglia Ruskin University, and documented various sports competitions, as well as events such as student games, staff tournaments and social team events, as well as the British University and College Sports Nationals in Sheffield in 2016 and 2017 organised by the University. Images of various sports, such as swimming, basketball, karate, judo or athletics have been published in print and online to promote the university. • From 2015 I have photographed multiple nightlife events for Anglia Ruskin University and other nightclubs like Assembly Rooms, Boston and The Academy, Cambridge. Nightlife photography is a very fast paced environment with unpredictable conditions such as bad lighting and behaviour of the public. My role as a nightlife photographer consists of documenting the night, assuring people enjoy their experience. This has challenged my photographic capabilities and improved my problem-solving skills due to the unforeseeable nature of the environment. • Since the beginning of university, I have developed my experience and knowledge in fields such as still life/product photography, documentary, moving image, event photography and weddings. Being involved in all of these has given me valuable experience and confidence in various fields of photography. All of these projects require a professional standard of customer service, which develop essential skills such as communication and negotiating, Customer communication is key to organising photographic projects, as well as other significant skills such as project management, post production, with both video and still image, and marketing. • In 2012, I have voluntarily been involved with the Alchemy Project, which involved organising photography walks for people in the community to create a friendly and engaged society. My duties towards this project included communicating with the main organiser to plan the walks, as well as choosing the locations, dates and times. The walks have been very popular across all ages and ethnic backgrounds, and have been advertised in public newspapers as well as online. With the end of this project, this has been an exhibition, displaying best images from each member of the group at the Local Council. • Between 2011 and 2013, I have photographed and filmed various live concerts and performances, including Boston Youth Jazz Orchestra, Jazz and Rock Academy, as well as London Symphony Orchestra. The photographs taken at those events have been published online, on official orchestra websites as well as advertising leaflets. The video footage has been published in the form of a DVD.
