Here is my up-dated CV during my feedback Jacquie suggested a few changes. Change personal statement to include that I am a photographer. Education should go first with the most recent at the top. There is no need to have my past works addresses just my role and description and take off references.
I have once again chosen not to have my contact number on the cv for my blog but it will be on the printed version.

The Atlantic Whale Foundation
While volunteering with the charity Atlantic Whale Foundation, I gained valuable work experience as a photographer, working for a client and with other practitioners. I also gained new skills by photographing animals in the wild learning to anticipate their movements and gained knowledge of how my images could be used in the field of conservation.
Working at Ellison’s, photographing their beauty products for the company’s website. I gained valuable experience working for a client and working to a brief. I also learned how to communicate my ideas to a client and receive and adapt to their feedback to create work that met their needs.
My experience at The Range, helped me develop my general people and problem solving skills as my role as floor and till staff involved me talking to and helping customers with their problems. I also learnt more about working with in a team to achieve a goal (daily sales goal) but also working independently, solving problems on my own and relying on my own initiative to help the store run smoothly.
