About me
I am a Director of Photography and (when required) Self-Shooting Director with two decades of experience in multiple roles across Broadcast, marketing, branded content, narrative and promos. I also edit and colour grade. As a DOP I shot the BAFTA-winning documentary Just a Few Drinks for the BBC (plus its follow up documentary on drug misuse), shot music promos for high profile artists as well as internationally acclaimed short films. I shot supercars up the side of mountains. I've shot covert footage in Hong Kong helping expose the illegal trade in endangered species, Directed commercial work for Britain’s oldest brewery and have accidentally dropped a phone in the Queen’s toilet while Directing and shooting a timelapse film on the Royal Barge prior to the Thames Jubilee celebrations. These last two were unconnected. Prior to this I worked in post for many years on all manner of TV shows across factual, lifestyle and light entertainment from The South Bank Show to Blind Date to the 11 O'Clock Show et al. I have worked with Olympians, footballers, actors, TV stars, NGOs, large multi-nationals and small artisanal craftspeople. I have advanced knowledge of all major camera systems and 4k/6k/8k workflows from acquisition to delivery. Timelapse, Car-rigging, motion work and gimbal work. Both single cam and multicam setups. Running large crews or shooting run and gun style as a solo operator. Based in London but always happy to work globally. Have my own Netflix-approved 4K kit with audio and lighting but happy to work with house or rented equipment. If you'd like to talk to me about your upcoming projects please get in touch.
