Over the years I have had a lot of experience in photography both pre-digital and digital eras. I have often been asked by friends to photograph events in my spare time. Events include weddings, gigs, promotional launches and parties. I have produced photo gifts and calendars for friends and families.
Prior to being made redundant at Manchester Airports Group last year, I was increasingly involved in various photography projects both in and out of the work environment. These included photo articles for the intranet and award winning group Magazine, Bournemouth Airport new terminal launch, Balkan Holiday Launch, Marketing events, Children In Need Fundraising (BBC – Nottingham), British Heart Foundation fundraising gig, Flybe service launch, football matches, national badminton tournaments, Sand Polo Beach Tournament (Sandbanks), Dorset Music Awards and many others. More recently I took photos at produced an article for a local fashion show event and a fundraising fancy dress swim for Macmillan Cancer Trust. All of these have involved a combination of either preparing the photos upload onto web sites, social media or editing for CD’s or photo gifts. I have also recently been involved in cataloguing photos for a gallery project and providing a scanning service to preserve artists work
I would love the opportunity to use my photographic experience towards imparting my passion of photography, to support trainee photographers and help with promotion of creative artists work. I have also recently been more actively involved in local and national networking groups specifically in the creative industries.
