All About Me

I am a polite girl who is always up for new tasks. I am currently a photographer who works for myself. My hobbies are to people watch, watching how people act out together and when they are by themselves, especially when people are working. This influences my work majorly making the shows that I have been involved in more life like, making it easier for my audience to relate to it. I have phenomenal taste in music which is interpreted into my work. Music is a massive part of my life as grew up with my mom playing the piano a lot.

Production Manager

The Only Way is Essex

Throughout this job role, I had to ensure the budget wasn't spent over and this includes cost relating to the crew and practicalities of running a production. This also meant I had to oversee the search for locations and sign location releases. Throughout the filming of TOWIE I had to ensure that the team that had been hired were working well and getting the production finished on time. The responsibilities I had to carry included setting up controlling the spending, paperwork and liaising with the First Assistant Director to make sure the production schedule and departmental budget are on target. At the end of each production, as TOWIE is filmed in series, I would have to 'wrap' the production. This involved ensuring that all final voices are dealt with, locations are signed off, and rental agreements are terminated and equipment that had been borrowed returned.

90 Credit Extended Media Diploma

Solihull College

Throughout this course I managed to develop skills to end up where I am today. I discovered new knowledge on how to film and direct documentaries even allowing me and a small group to travel to Leamington Spa to film a large group of people form the Guide Dog Association. Another skill I managed to understand was designing and animating. The designing part of my skills helps me with my photography nowadays allowing me to express that skill through photos aswell as my emotions.
