I photographed the band Peach club at Wharf Chambers in Leeds, UK, for promotional material for their 2019 shows and tour.
I was the photography assistant for Sarah Brick on a Superdrug Beauty campaign shoot. I carried and set up her photography equipment, ensured images were coming through on Capture One and helped the whole team pack down after shooting.
My role was to update their database for event staff, contact potential employees to recruit for their client's luxury events, via social media and assisting with beauty consultancy presentations.
I was a supporting artist for an episode of Channel 4's Ackley Bridge.
I was the photographer and editor for Daisy's Moore's final major project for her final year at London College of Fashion, studying Make Up and Prosthetics. The photo shoot was centred around Hollywood's portrayal of the witch.
RAG fashion show is a charitable event organised by University of Leeds students, inviting local designers and creatives to be involved in the event. I photographed product shots for every model involved and also photographed the runway show.
My role was to deliver 5* customer service and have exceptional product knowledge. Whilst being customer facing, I was also part of the social media team, maintaining our store Instagram and Facebook channels. My role was also to maintain the standards and stock levels on the shop floor.
My responsibilities during this role were to ensure artwork wasn't damaged, provide information to visitors about the exhibition and gallery, assist at events held by the gallery and at children's weekend activity workshops.
I recently graduated from Leeds Arts University with a First Class honours degree in Photography. My time studying at Leeds Arts University allowed me to develop my technological skills using the Adobe creative suite and Capture One Pro. I was also able to use studio lighting and had access to industry standard equipment. I eventually specialised in 35mm and 120mm film fashion photography.
I studied Fine Art at Leeds Beckett for 1 academic year before transferring to Leeds Arts University. This year at Leeds Beckett allowed me to develop my graphic skills such as becoming more competent with Adobe InDesign. I also experimented with risograph printing, performance video art and made textile and found material sculptures.
I spent a year experimenting with traditional fine art mediums such as photography, metalwork, sculpture, print-making, drawing and painting, where I eventually specialised in photography - simultaneously incorporating techniques I'd learnt in other areas within my photography practice. I completed the diploma with a Merit.
