Photography Technician

I graduated from Manchester Metropolitan in 2007 with a First Degree Hons in BA Photography. During my degree, and over the next 8 year period I worked as a photographic assistant and freelance photographer and producer in Manchester. I was supported by The Cornerhouse Art Gallery as a 'Young Artist', who sold and exhibited my work.

I helped to establish and also worked as an art director for Envirolution Festival, a one day free environmental festival based in Central Manchester, facilitating workshops at other festivals and events, with a group of volunteers throughout the year.  I set up and ran a small photo booth at festivals and events and worked as a facilitator running art workshops for different community groups throughout my time in Manchester.  In 2008 I started working at Bolton University as a Photography and AV Technician, progressing on to a senior technician position.  I worked there until starting my role at Falmouth University, moving to Cornwall in 2014. To begin with the role was part-time and I worked as a support worker for adults with additional needs on a farm, and site managed a local festival until the role became full time in 2018.
