Studio Assistant Apprentice

Imago Photographic

I was an Apprentice in a fashion product photography studio. I did a range of roles here, including a Still Life Product Photographer and Retoucher. I have good knowledge of Photoshop, Lightroom and Capture One, and can adjust lighting and camera settings to get the result I require. Also I have done the styling of products on mannequins, models and flat lays and therefore have good brand and designer knowledge.

I have learnt a lot here about photography studios and fashion, and therefore have experience in an e-commerce setting as well with the products them self. In regards to retouching, I have experience in cut-outs, colour correction and actions. I always use Wacom tablets when retouching. 

As part of my Apprenticeship, I get training in Social Media therefore I have a good knowledge of blogging and social media website. The qualification I am gaining is a BTEC Level 3 Creative and Digital Certifcate.

These included cleaning, sorting through stock, pricing items and serving and advising customers on the shop floor.
