Freelance

Since graduating from my BA in 2012 I've worked predominantly as a freelance photographer. Although this has been the most focused aspect of my freelance role, I have worked across a variety of mediums and developed my skills working in graphic design, interior design, illustration and videography. All of these roles involve working closely with clients, creating visuals to bring value to brands and organisations, communicating ideas well and strong listening skills. Good record keeping, general maintenance along with updating equipment and being organised are part of my everyday duties. As well as this the technical side of the job means being proficient across the adobe suite, specifically Photoshop, Lightroom, Illustrator, InDesign and Premiere Pro, as well as an up to date knowledge of current trends, techniques and the use of camera equipment. As well as this, I have exhibited extensively in solo and group shows and undertaking on artist residencies.


Teaching

Since 2014 I’ve work intermittently in various teaching roles both as a covering member of staff at Newcastle College and Staffordshire University as well as independently teaching on workshops. In 2014-15 I undertook a 9-month cover position on the HE Contemporary Art Practice Degree as well as on the foundation level interdisciplinary course of fine art, graphic design, ceramics, illustration and textiles. Currently, I am teaching on the Step Up to HE course at Staffordshire University…

In addition to this, earlier this year (2019) I work as a media technician supporting the BA and MA students at Keele University…
