Freelance cinematographer based in the U.K & available worldwide. Currently shooting commercials, music videos and branded content for a huge variety of clients. Recent clients include Adidas, Reebok, Unilever, Jaguar, LadBible and LaTam Airlines. I love working closing with directors to really find out their truest vision for a project/story. This allows me the ability to create the best imagery for particular story. I also pride myself on being able to achieve a high level of work regardless of budget and time constraints. Having worked in the industry for over a decade I've built up a strong network of extremely talented camera and lighting crew. Surrounding myself with such talented and passionate crew allows me to push the limits of what could often be seen as unachievable on set due to the various and often unforeseen challenges that crop up in production. I own and operate a large amount of industry standard equipment from a Red 6K cinema camera right down to wireless video monitoring equipment. Whilst I do own a lot of kit some jobs often still require hiring in equipment from a rental house. Having hired so many times over the years I've built a great relationship with several rental house across London.
Working In-House for Action and Adventure sports production house EpicTV I was responsible for shooting and directing various projects throughout my time there. As role of In-House Filmmaker my position encompassed almost every role of within a production. Responsible pre-production and logistics of a shoot, as well as shooting and directing on set. I'd also be responsible for the edit/grade and final delivery of the film in many cases. In my two years with EpicTV I was fortunate enough to travel the world shooting and directing branded content films as well as a weekly snowboard show.
A short film I shot and directed titled "Uploaded" received an Honourable Mention in the Girl Films International short film contest. The contest was ran and judged but Spike Jonze (director of Her, Three Kings & Where The Wild Things Are").
