Summary

With 2 years as a Photographers assistant and 3 years as an entrepeneur, I understand that it takes hard work and devotion to achieve your goals. Since graduating from College, I have focused on my art, beginning with Graphic design, following with Photography. Although Photography came a little later in my life, It has always been a very important part of it. I throughly enjoy what I do, however I am now seeking to develop my career in the field of fashion and editorial Photography. My dream would be to photograph for British Vogue or Harpaar's Bazaar. I am willing to do what it takes to get there. I am passionate, reliable, a very fast learner and focused. I am comfortable around all types of people and social when I need to be. 

I possess Customer facing and administrative skills. I am also very familiar with real world post-production from Raw files to Jpeg. I photograph weddings at the moment, and so I have always worked well under pressure. I am very familiar with Photoshop CS3, Adobe Bridge and Lightroom. I am well travelled, and have been to many parts of the world. I see this opportunity as a step forward to achieving my lifelong dream and am willing to do what it takes.

I am seeking to respond to new challenges and contribute to your organisation in the fashion photography sector as your assistant.
