Experience

Photography and Videography Experience

I am entirely self-taught at photography and filmmaking. I acquired my first DSLR camera, a Nikon D5000, in March 2017. I now use a Nikon D7100. I also have a GoPro Hero 3, which is several years older, and an iPhone 7. All my films and photos are taken using these three pieces of kit, with a variety of lenses for the former. All photo editing is done using Adobe Lightroom, while for video editing I use iMovie or Final Cut Pro.
