Freelance profile

Michael Preston (Creative19)

I'm a versatile, experienced, hard working professional photojournalist and designer mostly based in London, UK, but more than happy to travel for the right project.

I'm creative and versatile enough to be able to cover any issue. I'm technically meticulous and have a very good eye for detail. This combines with excellent people skills and a 'can do’ approach to whatever project I'm working on.

Whatever your photographic or creative needs are, I can help you. Whether it's for news, features, or PR use, I deliver consistently to deadline, on target and always within your budget, every time. You won't be disappointed.

Extra information:

In addition to my work as a photojournalist covering news, features, interviews and as a photographer covering direct commissions, PR and commercial photographic assignments, I've also got several years experience as a designer.
 
In this role, I’ve worked with blue-chip companies, charities/NGOs, trade unions and arts organisations, on design projects ranging from layout and design for newspapers, magazines and books, as well as corporate identity schemes and all the usual kind of print projects - booklets, leaflets, posters, stationery and apparel.
 
I’ve also written several short news based articles, and opinion columns for online channels and websites.
 
I've very strong computer skills on both Apple and PC platforms and I have experience of managing Apple LAN systems. I'm proficient in a wide range of software, in addition to Adobe Creative Suite, and MS Office and technology is something that I can use to its fullest extent. I work well in teams and/or alone and enjoy rising to the challenge of a new project.
