Alongside my skills in Photography and marketing, I've also developed a number of practical creative skills to help me deliver a range of finished products. Previously, I set up my own magazine and produced all copy and designed an interactive PDF.
Skills I've picked up along the way
As an internal communications manager, I've been responsible for developing staff engagement campaigns and I also became the organisation's photographer, videographer, editor, designer and copywriter for all things internal. I use Adobe Creative Suite – including Photoshop, Premiere Pro, Indesign and Dreamweaver – to develop ideas and products. I designed the Department's staff magazine (online and an interactive PDF).

While you wouldn't want to capture an entire conference, modern professional DSLR cameras are capable of shooting high quality HD video. I have experience of filming and editing corporate video, including short pieces to camera. These are ideal for client updates, youtube and for use at events.
