Second-year photography student Daisy Ware-Jarret assisted one of the most highly-reputed lensmen, Nadav Kander, on a shoot last week.

Kander has photographed some of the most powerful people in the world -including Barack Obama in 2009 - and his work has been collected by both the National Portrait Gallery and Victoria and Albert Museum in London.

Felicity McGabe, a colleague of Kander's, said of Daisy:

We were really pleased to have Daisy working as a part of our team yesterday. She was quick to pick up on the way we work and what was expected on set, she oversaw a section of the lighting – positioning it, adjusting it as necessary as we went along and then de-rigging during the strike of the set. Daisy worked really well with the other assistants to keep the momentum of the day moving forward and bringing us in on schedule.
