About me

 

Hello! I am a Professional Photographer and Graphic designer. I have more than 6 years of experience and in-depth knowledge of Adobe Creative Suite, most importantly Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign. I have worked as a graphic designer and most importantly as a freelance creative and photographer for numerous magazines and clients. I have learned all of these programs through courses taken while in pursuit of my career and I use them in my current role as a Freelance Creative in Visual Aperture. Moreover, my freelancer experience has afforded me a well-rounded skill set, including multi-tasking and communication abilities. This experience has also helped me to develop diverse skills and knowledge in photography, bulk editing, print production, graphic design, social media, advertising, photo manipulation and retouching, promotion and video editing. Clients: Diageo (specific projects for Johnnie Walker, Buchanan's Legacy, and Cacique Rum), British American Tobacco (Belmont cigarettes), Whirlpool and ISKIA (high-end store). I am seeking a full-time or part-time position that will allow me to apply my knowledge, acquired skills and creativity to benefit a company.
