Know How:

Professional with over 9 years of experience as a freelancer has enabled me to develop not only my photography assistant/digital capture skills using different styles and techniques, and for different commercial or artistic purposes; it has also developed my ability to quickly absorb a brief, adapt to varying work conditions and personality types, work quickly and efficiently, and deliver high quality photographs and lighting techniques within tight time frames.

I have assisted photographers on fashion shoots to catalog and studio portraits, for magazines, clothing boutiques and department store marketing material and personal use. I have solid

technical skills using both digital and traditional SLRs, Phase One and Capture One Pro 9 and am confident using a range of lighting techniques to produce different effects. I am adept with Photoshop as well as Aperture,Lightroom and have experience uploading photographs into company databases and archives.
