From her time as a Picture Researcher at Getty Images through more recent freelance projects, Jane has consistently delivered. She has that elusive combination of creativity and organisation. Jane is ridiculously reliable and professional with a manner and approach that makes working with her a joy. If you have an image-based project, look no further.

Jane always impressed me as an effective leader of her team at Harcourt/Pearson. She has a broad understanding of the digital media market and publishers’ needs, the attention to detail needed to manage projects well, the ability to negotiate effectively on prices, rights and contracts and a talent for working with a wide range of people.

Jane is a knowledgeable and expert Media Researcher who is able to manage effectively in all areas - from the interpretation of a brief, creative and intuitive research and photographic, video and audio commissioning, through to a timely delivery of the final product. Jane is a meticulous and organised person who can be relied upon to complete all background work such as copyright clearance and can steer a team through the various legalities of shooting on location. Jane is both creatively and administratively tenacious and it was a pleasure to work alongside her.

Jane is extremely professional and conscientious in all aspects of her work and always impresses. She is also great fun to work with and has a gift for making even the most self-conscious of us relax in front of the camera. I even liked the photographs of myself, I would highly recommend her.
