I am currently studying a MA in Photography at Kingston University. I am a photographer, Photo Editor & curator. I enjoy exciting challenges
When employed as a Photo Editor for an online image library, I managed images in the archive and those uploaded onto the company site, applying the relevant metadata and image processing. I have curated and produced work for exhibitions such as a photography exhibition at Kensal Green Ceme-tery taking place inside and around the colonnades of the Anglican Chapel. I have versatility & large repertoire in my picture taking. My last project involved fixing a camera to a helium balloon and pho-tographing aerial views of permaculture sites. Whilst studying the BSc (Hons) in Photography & Digital Imaging I voluntarily worked as a Picture Assistant for westPhoto.co.uk & organised the westPhoto 3rd Annual Photography Competition & exhibition on the theme of Sustainability.
I can send you a portfolio and exhibition resume on request.
