An open mind with a creative drive.
With the creative media industry being so competitive that isn’t enough. A new way of looking at things and originality is also needed.
I have a high technical knowledge of photography, video and what makes them work.
Again this isn’t different enough. What is different is the stories I can tell. I use my skills to create something that not only goes against cookie cutter journalism, but does so with flare. I let my personality live through my work while still meeting requirements set.
The skills I do know I am able to carry out with consistency and precision, while the skills I am yet to learn will be practised until they are second nature.
My high level understanding of camera operation helps me learn the basics of new equipment very quickly and after not much time, I will be able to create high level content. My skills at post-processing are either of a high level or increasing rapidly, these include Adobe Lightroom, Photoshop, Premier and Indesign.
During every piece I have created whether written, photo or video I have tried to push my creative abilities to the next level. Having that natural “eye” for certain stories or compositions is where my talent started, but talent will only take you so far. Hours and hours of beating on my craft is what got me the skills.
I am dedicated, professional, willing to take chances and most importantly prepared to work smart.
