About me

Email: Telephone: +44 7403 276 600 I am a cinematographer and photographer based in London with experience working on branded content, music video and documentary projects in the UK and abroad. My passion for image-making began when I was a teenager. I learned to shoot, process and print with film and experimented with different photographic genres and key techniques throughout higher education. Following graduation with an undergraduate degree, I started working as a freelance photographer with clients including Amazon, BBC Scotland and News International. My involvement with local creative communities led to me co-founding a collective called Domicile Crocodile where I began to mix photography with other disciplines, particularly video. This sparked a new desire to pursue filmmaking and I entered the MA Film programme at Screen Academy Scotland, 1 of only 3 film schools in the UK which is recognised as a centre of excellence in film practice education along with the NTFS & London Film School. My graduation project, ‘Event Horizon’ (written and directed by Joséfa Celestin; produced by Margarita Veberaite) has been screened at 51 film festivals worldwide and received 9 awards including Best Cinematography at Sick Chick Flicks Film Festival, USA, Best Photography at Cryptshow Fest and Best Photography at Festival Internacional de Cine de Terror y Fantástico de Córdoba. After graduating with a Masters with Distinction, I continued to work with the 'Event Horizon' team to launch a production company called Shakehaus. Following two years working to establish the company, I moved to a shareholder role, relocated to London and returned to freelancing. My recent clients include: AMV BBDO, BBC, Freak Films, John Brown Media, Leith, Spirit Media, & Sunshine Communications
