About me

I am passionate about the visual arts, fashion and self-published photo books. I have three years experience working for publications including Wallpaper* Magazine, The Daily Telegraph and the Robb Report UK. My open minded approach to new ideas and gaining new skills is underlined by my wide range of experience and skills. The most satisfying roles for me are ones that are balanced between working creatively and logically. My ideal role would be one that allows me to work with all aspects of visual imagery, from conception to completion. I love a challenge and am used to being thrown in at the deep end on projects. I have assisted Still Life Photographer, Neil Mersh and Elite Model Management with ad hoc projects, including London Fashion Week & Elite Model Look. I have experience in: Photography, Picture Editing, Licenses, International Event Production, Negotiating, International Shoot Coordination, Research, Commissioning, Artworking, Shoot Production, Management, Talent Representation, Marketing, Social Media & Sales
