I am a Fashion Photography Graduate based in the South of Hampshire. I have always had a passion for taking photos and my experience in fashion retail gave me the knowledge to pursue fashion photography at a degree level. I specialise in high quality skin retouching and social media management.
Whilst being at University, I have gained strong interests in Social Media due to creating and running Soton Models. Soton Models is a student run digital modelling agency created to provide models for art students, such as myself and other creatives. I found this to be extremely successful with the students, which led me to winning the Exceptional Extracurricular Award at the Solent Student Union Awards.
During College, I completed a unit surrounding Fashion Photography. I did not have much knowledge in the subject prior to this brief however, I was eager to learn. I began searching on YouTube for fashion photographers to gain tips and tricks. I stumbled upon Jessica Kobeissi’s YouTube channel and began watching all her videos. I quickly realised my love for her post production style and skin retouching skills.
To this day, I still am inspired by her work. She taught me, you don’t need to shoot with a large team or extravagant studio spaces. Using natural lighting can still create stunning, soft, beautiful images and having just you and the model on set can give the shoot a personal and comfortable feeling. I still continue to bring influences of her photographic style when completing my own projects and I still consider her to be one of my biggest inspirations.
