Photography for live music and events, professional TV and film production.
A keen photographer from a young age and in particular since leaving school in 1999, Cami has always had a passion for expressing herself in many different forms, whether it is through the lens of a camera, video production or through her own authentic, creative ideas. She left school with one aim- to build a strong and successful career within the huge industry of Media.
After working on her first ever short film whilst studying for a BTEC in Media Production, she knew that from this experience she was born to work in TV and Film Production! Since that life-changing experience, Cami went on to train for a degree in Broadcasting Television Production and Operations at Ravensbourne College of Design and Communications. She graduated in 2004 and has worked on many different productions throughout her course as a runner and assistant. After her graduation, she then went on to work freelance on pilots as a Production Assistant, including two pilots for prime time TV with presenter Bradley Walsh, Noddy A-Z, Live at Edinburgh Festival 2004? – Edinburgh Fringe Festival and Cami also worked with a Los Angeles based production company who were filming in Glasgow for the European specials for HouseHunters International.

She also has assisting experience in camera and sound operations, in a live and energetic broadcast studio which obviously involves a lot of responsibility and focus. Cami thoroughly enjoyed her ongoing learning practice through her training at Ravensbourne and other related work experiences and is professionally aware of the health and safety protocols within a studio and location filming environment. Cami thrives within community projects and loves bringing individuals together for different projects, through her own growing list of personal contacts which include friends, former colleagues in the industry and fellow passionate artists.
Always having enjoyed and embraced music, never conforming to any particular genre, Cami actively promotes unsigned bands and artists through her unique photography and her video skills allow her to record bands at live music gigs. Cami also organises and promotes events and has organised and self-promoted many high-profile events successfully. In her spare time, Cami works with a local production company, promoting the services over social media website such as Facebook and Twitter to promote their live music event production services. Cami frequently organises local acoustic nights at Bolton Little Theatre, which involves contacting bands and musicians and inviting them to play in a small theatre venue without microphones and the busy atmosphere of a public house venue. The money made from each session is given back to the theatre for their ongoing productions. As well as organising these popular and successful events, Cami also photographs the musicians in action in order to further promote the events and also give the musicians material to use for their own social media platforms and websites.
