My Client: River Collective (www.rivercollective.co.uk)

Their Client: Uneek Clothing

Concept:​ No

Design: No

Managed: Yes

Production: No

Hired to fly to Cape Town with art director from River Collective to help direct and manage photo and video shoot across a 10 day period in photography studio and on location. My responsibilities included liaising between photographer, stylist, makeup artist and model to relay issues and solve problems, as well as running the video room with the videographer and editing assistant. A high number of shots was achieved each day meaning keeping organised between outfit changes and making sure the correct garment numbers appeared in the correct order for ease of production post-shoot. Whilst managing the video room I worked with the stylist to keep an eye on any visual discrepancies and give direction and opinion on the model's current look and poses chosen. This also involved a day shooting with kids which required a change-up in management style to keep things moving a little faster and a slightly different audio playlist being chosen!
