Cassandra Jackson-Baker - Private Photo Editor

Hiya! I'm Cassandra, but you can call me Cass. 

I am a private photo editor to busy destination wedding photographers. Lightroom is my jam and I have a black belt in Photoshop. Most days you'll find me drinking too much coffee, cycling in the country side, or planning my next international adventure.

Let me take over the bulk of your photo editing so that you can get back to living your life of love and adventure. 


My story

Let's just say, this was not the intended plan. I never set out to become a professional photo editor. I was a photographer. I had a BA in photography. My job was to photograph amazing luxury properties. I thought I had a clear plan on how to grow my photography business in a sustainable way. I was even short-listed for the Guardian's Travel Photographer competition TWICE. Then just like that, life decided I needed to follow another path. You see, I am a New Yorker living in London and starting last year I found myself flying back and forth to help my family. Freelancing as a photographer just wasn't possible anymore. But I love photography so I knew I had to diversify if I wanted to stay in the industry.

It was then that the idea of serving photographers as a professional editor was born. I noticed a common theme among photographers - and had experienced it myself - we didn't have the time to do it all. And the main culprit? Editing large batches of images. After a shoot it is easy to then need 20, 30, even 40 hours to edit. It was here that I realised I am a bit of an anomaly. I love to edit large batches of images, whereas most photographers don't. It takes up too much time. They want to be out there shooting more photos, building their business, or hanging with friends and family. I had a lightbulb moment. I knew I could transform my passion for all things Adobe and lend a helping hand so that other photographers could get back to doing what they love. Simultaneously, with the wonders of the internet, I would have the flexibility to serve my clients from where ever I happened to be. It is a win-win situation. And so was born my private photo editor business. 

I am super excited to help photographers build their businesses and help them with their photo editing needs. 


My approach

I love working with adventurous destination wedding photographers who take an authentic approach to their subjects; the photographers who want to tell the couple's story Awkward poses? Not my thing. Super formal gatherings? Beautiful, but no thanks. I am naturally drawn to outdoor images with a touch of the documentary and editorial. Natural light - preferably at sunrise or sunset - is my ideal! And don't even get me started on landscapes. The more dramatic, the better! Mountains? I might die. I don't mean to brag, but I am pretty great with editing stories that take place in the great outdoors. 

A film photographer by training, I work best with photographers whose style is to shoot bright and then add that nostalgic character in editing. Are you a fan of Fuji 400H or Portra? So am I! Do you shoot hybrid? I love that and can edit to match and ensure consistency between your analogue and digital images. 

And as a digital nomad, I know I can best photographers who share my own values best; love of the outdoors, travelling, and living life to the fullest. If this sounds like you, then let me help you reclaim your life of love and adventure! Outsource your photo editing. 

So if you think we can be the perfect match then come on over and say hello!
