Work Experience

Position


Job title: Freelance Photographer
Employer: Self Employed
Date of employment: 2013 – present.
Summary of role:

Working as a photographer, I thrive on having variety through the projects I’m working on and the team I’m working with. I consider myself a people person, and my commissions are often portraits for commercial clients, or at events and functions.

Organisation is key prior to a shoot going well. From knowing my client’s expectations to being prepared for any scenario such as bad weather. Challenging shoots require fast thinking and a positive attitude. English is not the first language of some of my clients, so being able to communicate well and clearly is essential.

Position


Job title: Supervisor
Employer: Jessops Camera Store
Date of employment: 01/06/2006 – 01/07/2009
Summary of role:

Through promotion I reached management level supervising a large team of staff. I would regularly be briefing the team on new procedures, equipment and deadlines.

I would also be teaching customers of all abilities how to use new cameras, giving advice and sharing my knowledge. This would often require patience and an ability to adapt my teaching style.

Supporting Information:

Why do you want to teach overseas?:

I want to teach overseas because I am looking for a new experience, a new challenge. I believe my skills as a photographer could be transferred to teaching abroad and help facilitate this dream. Having never lived abroad, I believe it would give me a fresh perspective on the world, and therefore also enrich my process as a photographer.
I think I have the qualities to be a good teacher, and it as a chance to share my knowledge with others. Although I have not visited Korea, I have visited various parts of South East Asia, and I believe it is somewhere I could be happy living abroad. Teaching allows me to do this.

Why are you a suitable candidate for teaching overseas?:

As a photographer, communication is a huge part of what I do, and I am certain these skills would transfer into my teaching.

I have worked with children in a photography studio environment, and always found it rewarding when everyone had achieved what they set out for that day.

I regard myself as being enthusiastic in all I do, friendly, approachable, having patience and am confident with a group of people.
