Craft and Design
Iam a freelance photographer with 15years of work experience in editorial photography (portraiture,fashion,music and documentary ).Besides working for leading national and international publications such as ID magazine,QG,Dazed and Confused,Independent Magazine ,Sunday Times Mag ,The Fader (NY) and Spin Mag (NY) I have also extensive experience in working in the music industry with bands such as Blur,Ami Winehouse and Lady Gaga to name a few.My fashion work includes shooting for a diverse range of clients such as Levis,Nike and Kathrine Hamnett
I have been a visiting Lecturer at the London College of Communication for the last 10 years.Teaching the ABC Level 3 Awards course STREET FASHION PHOTOGRAPHY.During this course I use my professional knowledge and experience to guide students through the process of developing ideas ,conducting research and shooting Streetfashion stories.The idea of developing this course came to me after giving lectures at the LCC and realizing that students showed great intrest in learning how to produce a professional fashion shoot and consequently build a portfolio that considers editorial requierments .The work that students produced on my course has enabled them to either apply for BA or MA Photography courses or in some cases students have opted to use their portfolios to start a career as freelance photographers.
My Tutoring is based on guiding students through the process of preparing(developing ideas,conducting research) ,organizing (models,location,technical requierments) and photographing fashion stories .Because I see my teaching as a way of helping students to prepare a portfolio I use my knowledge and experience in the industry to ensure that their work will achiev professional standart. Students who want to apply for further education such as BA or MA photography courses will also greatly profit from my long teaching experience at one of the leading Art College in this country.
