I am an award winning DOP/Lighting camera operator who has more than ten years of experience in film, television, music videos and branded content working across all formats.
I began my career working as a location scout for films, TV dramas, and commercials, I soon realised my passion lay with cameras. Specialising initially in documentaries due to my fondness for the medium, I have shot all over the world on projects for TV and online. I often choose to work on films that revolve around social or human issues; topics that are close to my heart and fuel for my love of documentary filmmaking.
I Have a great eye for a shot and will go to great lengths to make it happen. I am highly adaptable and love coming up with creative solutions to shooting problems. I am used to working in many varied and challenging conditions, from being more than a mile underground in various mines around the world; war-torn Syria and South Sudan; to the middle of a desert to the tops of mountains. I am always ready to go and always first to breakfast.
In the last few years, I have been able to focus more on music videos and narrative work, allowing him to shoot with more style and freedom. Pulling on my strong influences from cult cinema in the 70s, 80s, and 90s, as well as my lifelong passion for music in all forms.
I am looking forward to shooting more with analogue formats having recently shot a few projects combining 8mm with digital. I am currently prepping for a couple of 16mm projects shooting this year.
I have worked with many major brands, corporations, and charities producing, filming, and directing content including for Adidas, Stand Up 2 Cancer, Glencore and HSBC.
Outside of filming, I can normally be found eating or cooking something unusual, or on a long walk with my wife and dog, pausing regularly on route to cultivate my passion for landscape and street photography.
