Creative Process

In my role as a photo editor and visual curator, I apply my problem-solving skills and holistic mindset to ensure that the final selection of images tells a visually cohesive and compelling story.

When curating collections or editing photos, I delve deep to understand the essence of the content. I approach each project with curiosity, asking questions to discern the core message and intent behind the visuals.

Recognizing the importance of the bigger picture, I aim to create curated collections that not only showcase individual images but also convey a broader message or theme.

My ability to shift between various perspectives, zooming in on details and zooming out to see the overall narrative, empowers me to craft visually captivating and emotionally resonant collections.

Team collaboration

Whether it's ingesting millions of images from diverse photo sources or reviewing high-volume image submissions from a photography pool, establishing and sustaining efficient workflows is paramount for successful team collaborations.

With a proactive mindset, let us work together to identify potential roadblocks and offer solutions to streamline the creative process.

Let us thrive together in facilitating seamless communication by delivering timely responses and clearly defining expectations for deadlines.

Let us actively seek clarification and feedback as needed, ensuring clarity and efficiency in our collaborative endeavors.
