About me

I have an MA in camera operating and a degree in photography. Since then I have been freelancing for the last 7 years as an operator/cinematographer. I have worked on many commercials, music videos, documentaries and feature films. I have very broad experience in using many cameras, lights and lenses (such as C100, C300 MK2, Alexa, Amira, RED epic, Sony F55, Sony FS700, FS7, FS5 and many more) I am always looking to take on more opportunities within this industry. So if you have anything available please let me know. All the best, James
