I have worked with some of the most prestigious photographers over the past two decades, and am currently working a lot with some up and coming, who, you can find details of them on my "people I love" page. I have also worked with fantastic Directors and Producers for short film/music promo's which helps me understand the production side of the shoot, as well as helping relax any talented clients whilst in the make up chair.
My experience is reflected in my people skills. Working with high-end clients and also putting even the most nervous client at ease, I am very trustworthy, confidential, and discreet.
