You will be able to take creative direction from their Senior Photographers, communicating and forging good relationships across the studio, with a problem-solving mentality. 

You will be involved with researching current trends across the Home Interiors market to ensure that you stay current to trends and be inspired by what is happening across social and eCommerce. 

You will be working to style guides and briefs set by product teams and creative leads and work collaboratively with stylists to ensure that the room set is on brand before shooting.
