This is a picture of myself with my wife, Jade and my daughter, Lucy. This photo was taken just after Lucy was prescribed glasses and she first tried them on at home.
Apart from my family I have a keen interest in photography - I mostly enjoy photographing cityscapes and landscapes but the occasional portrait will slip in. I studied photography as a Level 3 BTEC at City of Bath College for two years ending in 2013, this is where I learnt more about Photoshop than I had managed to self-teach as well as a lot of technical aspects of photography. A selection of my photographs is shown on this page.
Whilst in college, I also learnt about advertising and graphic design - completing an AS level in Advertising as part of my course. This taught me how to use Adobe Illustrator and InDesign to create designs.
Since leaving college I have self taught myself to use other Adobe products such as Lightroom and Muse.
Apart from photography I have recently developed an interest in electronics, a subject that I briefly touched on in school, but didn't really appreciate until recently. Currently I am in favour of Picaxe chips but I have also used Raspberry Pi boards.
Since I left school, I have worked for McDonald's in Bath - I started as a part-time Crew Member in 2010 which helped me build self-confidence as well as confidence when talking to customers. Once I left college and worked full time I was promoted to Crew Trainer which allowed me to build skills in team leading, teaching and particularly coaching. Soon after this I was promoted to Shift Manager, this has increased my customer interaction skills and my ability to problem solve. My time in McDonald's has taught me how to acquire new procedures and put them into use as well as coaching others to allow them to be the best they can be.
