About Me

I'm a creative Art Director, Photo Editor and High End Retoucher, working throughout the UK on photographic projects from editorial, products, commercial clients and major advertising campaigns.

I strongly recognise the importance of high quality, creative images.

I have over 7 years experience and have been lucky enough to work with many amazing Photographers and renowned creative studios along the way.

Specialties: Garment alterations, colour correction, colour match in RGB and CMYK. 300dpi files for print and presentation. Dramatically alter lighting, reflections and shadows. Detailed masks, silhouette images for jewellery, clothing, electronics and various products. Blemish removal, high end skin, able to retain pore texture, luminous smooth skin on beauty portraits, lip enhancement, eyes, hair and make-up. Conceptualise and compose creative backgrounds, seamless compositing of interiors and landscapes, material properties and special effects.

As an Art Director I create various ideas and strategies for advertising campaigns. I have worked alongside creative directors, designers, copywriters and art-workers. My role also includes liaising directly with clients, production house’s, illustrators, photographers, models and producers amongst many others.

I am keen to be successful and I feel I have a good work ethic, plus I'm always up for a good challenge! I bring a young expressive mind with creative ideas to the table and importantly work well under pressure. 
I have a positive attitude and enjoy working alone as well as part of a team, as I enjoy sharing my ideas whilst respecting ideas of others. I also think it's important to take creative criticism on board and I am a firm believer that the sharing of ideas only makes creative work stronger.
