Work history

Currently

Editorial Intern

Photoworks

Jul 2017
  • Brighton, United Kingdom
  • Internship

Currently

Co-founder

Photography &

Apr 2017
  • London, United Kingdom
  • Freelance
  • A creative organisation and print publication exploring the ever-expanding field of photography - currently stocked in Camden Arts Centre, the ICA and online. Co-founded by myself and fellow University of Westminster graduate, Livia Smith. Roles were shared throughout production and involved us each working as an editor, designer, curator and publisher. We were required to communicate and collaborate with the featured artists, write interesting pieces of text and work towards a print deadline in order to have the publication printed in time for the launch of issue 1, which took place at a Miniclick event in Brighton where we gave a presentation. The name 'Photography &' came about as we wanted to focus on photography’s inclusive position within the current field of visual arts, allowing the theme of each issue to focus on a different aspect of art/culture/media etc... Issue 1 was titled 'Photography & Sculpture' and featured a range of dynamic artists such as Jack Carvosso, Alessandra Mureddu, Alexandra Lethbridge, Tom Heatley and James William Murray.

2017

Photography Teacher

Snap Foundation

Sep 2017 - Oct 2017
  • Port Elizabeth, South Africa
  • Internship
  • This voluntary role involved travelling around schools within the town of Port Elizabeth, South Africa, teaching children (aged 11-13 years) how to use cameras in order to express their creativity, communicate with one another and successfully work in a team. I was required to plan, organise and prepare lessons alongside a fellow volunteer in order to keep the children engaged and interested. An unforgettable experience that helped me to grow as a leader and a teacher.

  • In April 2017, I gave an artist talk for Brighton-based photography organisation, Miniclick. As well as discussing my own photographic practice during my presentation, this event was the launch of self-published publication, 'Photography &'. Other artists that spoke at the event were James William Murray and Livia Smith (fellow co-founder of 'Photography &').

2017

Editorial Intern

Black Dog Publishing

May 2016 - Jan 2017
  • London, United Kingdom
  • Internship
  • At Black Dog, I worked alongside the editorial team, helping with general tasks where necessary.

2017

Public Programme Assistant

Photo London

May 2016 - May 2017
  • London, United Kingdom
  • Full Time
  • I have worked at Photo London, the UKs leading photography fair produced by Candlestar, for the last two years. Being the Public Programme Assistant involved working in a small team to support the Public Programme Curator, ensuring the smooth event coordination during the week of Photo London in May. A very rewarding and exciting role that required strong initiative and independent working due to the tight schedule and fast-paced working environment. Some duties included guest list management, artist liaison, advising the Public Programme Curator, managing a sub-team of videographers/technicians and generally assisting the Candlestar team at Somerset House by helping in galleries, dealing with press and greeting/directing the general public.

2017

Image Processor & Social Media Manager

ehouse

Jan 2016 - Jul 2017
  • London, UK

  • This role required the efficient processing of images using Adobe programmes to meet tight client deadlines. Additionally, I was in charge of the social media accounts (Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, LinkedIn) during my time at ehouse - this involved writing and queuing relevant posts to gain public interest in order to attract possible prospective clients. This role significantly enhanced my knowledge and speed of using Photoshop and Lightroom, as well as giving me the opportunity to work within a fast-paced, professional and creative environment for a prolonged period of time.

2012

Exhibition Assistant

Brighton Photo Fringe

Sep 2012 - Nov 2012
  • Brighton, United Kingdom
  • Internship

2016

Photographer/Art Director

hose.

Apr 2012 - Apr 2016
  • Brighton, United Kingdom
  • Freelance
  • I have collaborated with fashion designer, Rebecca Cluett, on a number of occasions to direct, shoot and process images for look-books/campaigns for her hosiery company, 'hose.'. The pre-shoot art direction involved us working together to plan and visualise the styling/aesthetic of the images - for this, we conducted extensive creative research and prepared mood-boards.
