London, United Kingdom
My name is Nicole and I am a Freelance Picture Editor from London. I have a BA (Hons) in Photography from Leeds College of Art and I have previously undertaken internships on the Picture Desks of Marie Claire, British GQ and Brides Magazine. I have also worked as a Freelance Picture Editor for British GQ and I have experienced the day-to-day running of a magazine picture desk. My duties have included picture research, image credits, compiling a dummy, doing a financial mark-up, requesting invoices, liaising with image syndication agencies, contacting PR companies and celebrity publicists, calling-in products and co-ordinating photo shoot production.
I am well practiced in picture research and have a thorough knowledge of online image libraries and agencies. I have experience in photo shoot production and assisting. Having worked as a professional retoucher, I am used to organising large volumes of imagery. I am highly proficient in Adobe Photoshop; I am able to make cinemagraphs and do high-end retouching. I am well informed of entertainment news; current events and popular culture and I keep up-to-date with photographic trends and social media.
Please feel free to get in touch if you would like a copy of my CV and references about myself from the Picture Editor of Marie Claire and Former Photographic Director of British GQ Magazine.
