I worked initially full time for the Alan Cristea gallery producing photography and video content for online distribution. After relocating to the Netherlands in 2009 I continued to produce and direct films for the gallery as a freelance operator through Dapper Films, with our last film screened on BBC4 as part of the successful series "What artists do all day".
