Experience Summary

I have had an interest in photography since the age of thirteen. Throughout my interest, I have developed a professional level of skill and I am currently, self employed, contributing to the industry. I am also involved in a professional body, the BIPP (British institute of professional photographers). I enjoy art and going to see exhibitions in different media’s. I am interested in Computer based design and for the past two years have been studying design packages. I am an honest, trustworthy and reliable individual, who is keen to work and quick to learn new skills. I work well as part of a team or on my own, using initiative. I can adapt to a variety of situations and understand the importance of portraying a professional image. I am self motivated and ambitious, so would welcome the opportunity to learn new skills and techniques. I am a father and would like to continue to work in promotions to support my family, as well as the experience of working great campaigns.
