Part-time professional (paid work)
I was working as a freelance photographer during and then since my study of a Ba (Hons) PHOTOGRAPHY at Nottingham Trent University (UK) in 2013. In this time I have worked in roles including In-house Photography for a 5 star Resort and Spa in Cornwall, Product Photographer for a Independent Jewellery business, and the Manager of a Photography Sales and Printing Company. For the last 2 years I have been specialising in Lifestyle and Product photography in the South West; predominantly working with small, local, and independent clients.
I have been creating imagery on a bespoke basis to reflect the unique scale of these companies and to assist them to promote in a style that suits them. This allows me to be creative with my approach to each customer as well as using flexibility to achieve their goals and help them stand apart from the competition by thorough research.
This position has allowed me to work with a range of professionals to create engaging, high quality, brand aware photography for use across Print, Web, and Social Media; of which I also have managed accounts and seen a marked growth in engagement and sales.
I largely enjoy producing Water Photography which can complement the lifestyle brands I have worked with and has been published in the local area; this is also my most popular genre of print sales.
Companies I have created Photographic imagery for include; Atlantic Brewery & Distillery, Kobe Surf (swimwear), Basecampers (campervan conversions), Disco Beads (jewellery), The Bearded Brewery (Cider producer), Aquapac (photographic equipment), Legends of the Wayside (eco-surf clothing), Little Orchard Cider Festival (music event), Retallack Resort & Spa (luxury accomodation), Flowrider Cornwall (action sports), The Watering Hole (music venue), Tideline Treasure (Jewellery), and Watergate Bay Hotel (luxury accommodation).
