    Photo Editor/Writer/Sourcing/Manufacturing

    Philippines - Last active: 1 month ago - Tests: 4 - Portfolio: 26

    Hi, I'm Donna, a freelance photo editor/writer with a degree major in print journalism. Let me begin by saying I love sunsets, nature, wind and the sun. (the four elements) I basically love the Earth. Sometimes when I walk across the street, I stretch my arms and feel the wind. This place that we live in is such a beautiful one, I always appreciated it. When I am outdoors, I don't carry umbrella, I want to feel the heat that the sun rays bring me. I hug trees if there is a chance and I talk to animals. I am a person who enjoys nature and its gifts. I've always thought that to be able to live a happy life I must do what my heart tells me, so here I am following my dreams. I am very passionate with what I do. I may enjoy life but I take things seriously specially my chosen career path. In this case, writing, photo editing and manufacturing. I'm not the type that puts Photoshop action and leave the pictures funny looking. I respect pictures and treat them with care as if they are my own. I am also a photography hobbyist which makes me more interested in making every photograph look fantastic. I embrace change. I understand that I need to learn new things to be able to improve in what I do. Because of that I've tried a lot of things of which include pattern-making and even sewing. Other individuals may view stress as a negative thing. I am no masochist but pressure from work keeps me going. I transform the negative energy into positive. Because of my past experiences I became more resourceful. When I first started dealing with manufacturing I never expected to gain such knowledge. It all began with a simple question from my past client and then it became a regular thing. I find ways to get things done in a manner that the quality of the outcome will be of the best. For instance, if the client's request may not be followed exactly from what he/she wishes, I provide alternatives. Alternatives that in some cases became even more interesting than the original plan. I offer services such as: manufacturing, pattern-making and sourcing assistance. I am a person that can multitask. I have contacts of factories that deal with the following: 1. apparels 2. printing (heat press and screen) 3. toys 4. bags/wallets 5. hats 6. shoes 7. personalised things such as: umbrella, pen, mug and many other You see, I like talking. It may sound cliche but it is true. I like describing things, maybe one of the reasons why I am good at what I do.

    United Kingdom - Last active: 11 days ago - Tests: 4 - Portfolio: 4

    I’m an adaptable and well-seasoned British writer, creator of compelling online content. My diligent research skills allow me to understand and connect with readers, converting them into either obsessed followers or happy buyers. HIGHLY PROFESSIONAL SERVICES Completing tasks becomes a breeze when you’re dealing with another hard working professional. Your work will always be delivered promptly within our agreed deadline. In fact, 9 out of 10 times it will even arrive in your mailbox earlier than expected. Having someone you can depend on to consistently hit above the mark will allow your business to continue operating like clockwork. OUTSTANDING QUALITY CONTROL It can sometimes become a worry whether a new writer can truly deliver all the wonderful work they have promised you. There is nothing worse than receiving poor quality content or writing that doesn’t fare well through Copyscape. From working on both sides of the fence I have come to understand these annoyances all too well. Content from me will always be original and freshly squeezed just for you. All work passes through rigorous grammar and spelling checks before it can be cleared for dispatch. EASY COMMUNICATION Clear two-way communication is essential for keeping stress levels to a minimum. The possibility of being left high and dry as a deadline draws closer can be a rather unsettling feeling. However, this can be nullified by working with someone constantly connected and responsive. For those larger projects brief progress reports can offer reassurance that everything is progressing smoothly. SATISFACTION GUARANTEED If my work does not initially land on target I will endeavour to tweak it until your completely happy, free of charge. Alternatively a 100% money back guarantee is available you if you so wish. I maintain a friendly, easy to work attitude that I hope will cultivate your peace of mind. YOUR NEXT STEPS Getting in contact with me is a snap, I will even vow to get a message back to you within 24 hours. Should you prefer a face-to-face chat first then we can certainly schedule a Skype call. Ultimately you should hire me as an expert writer for your next online business venture.
