About me
Director of Photography, represented by Vision Artists. Working in high end commercial advertisement, film and promo. Ten years of experience as a freelance camera assistant, working in the feature film world on titles such as Star Wars VII, VIII, IX, Bond, Ready Player One. I feel very fortunate to have worked alongside some of the industries leading professionals, learning valuable skills and experiences from a diverse cast of creatives. Prior to working in the feature film industry, I studied fine art and photo documentary. I'm passionate about creating beautiful imagery, whether that be high end commercial content, social documentary or short form charity pieces. I'd be very happy to meet directors and creatives, who would like to a grab a coffee sometime. Thanks Alex

    London, United KingdomFreelance
    Working as a camera assistant / operator, in the feature film industry for twelve years. I have travelled across the globe, filming on location and dealing with the multitude of difficulties that this can present. Working on titles such as Star Wars, filming in challenging environments such as the deserts of Abu Dhabi, to the glaciers in Iceland. This has given me a very deep knowledge and skillset of how to work out on location and how to create beautiful imagery.
