Northern Assisting Photographer and Digi Tech based around Manchester, Leeds and Sheffield and willing to travel further afield.

With over 8 years of experience assisting In London on large commercial projects and leading photo shoots myself as an in-house senior fashion photographer, I know the importance of being supported by capable and intuitive assistants. 

I have assisted on large-scale commercial and advertising commissions for leading fashion, lifestyle and sports brands, as well as on food, interior and architecture shoots. Working for overseas clients, I have produced shoots, with responsibility for negotiating budgets, organising studio and equipment hire, managing castings, location scouting, permits and transport. 

Local knowledge - I have worked closely with northern production companies such as LS Productions & Seventy7 liasing with production to help source equipment from my local contacts, offering location and studio advise, as well as other essential requirements. 

I have experience of film making and documentary work as both lead and second camera and am often asked to shoot BTS and stills on TV commercials and film.
