About me
I’m a Cinematographer with 12 years experience shooting commercials, music videos and documentaries. This last 2 years has seen me change my pursuit towards fiction (while still working on commercial and music work) during which I have shot 4 short films and 2 features films. I'm looking for stories and people that inspire me and give me a chance to express myself visually. I'm obsessed with light and composition and how they impact the audience in their appreciation of the story. I'm open to all types of productions I just want to make interesting imagery. My kit list which I myself own is as follows: RED Epic Dragon 6K - 1 x 512gb Card, 1 - 480gb Card 2 x 120gb Cards PL Mount EF Mount FD Mount 3 x RED Bricks 4 x 130Wh V-Locks, 1 x 230Wh V-Lock, 2 x 95Wh V-Locks Canon FD Lens Set: 20mm F2.8 24mm F2.8 35mm F2.0 55mm F1.2 85mm F1.2 Canon EOSR with EF and FD Mount Sigma 18-35 F1.8 TVLogic 5.5 Inch OLED monitor Blackmagic 7Inch Monitor Sekonic L-508 Cine Meter Tilta Nucleus M Wireless Follow Focus Tilta Hard Follow Focus Tilta 4x4 Matte Box Tilta Moose Bars Easyrig Cine Saddle Mag Liner Apple Box Set Cartoni Tripod Head Vinten Sticks - 2 Stage Baby Legs Promist - ⅛ , ¼, ½ , Full Glass ND - 0.3, 0.6, 0.9 Hollyland Wireless Monitor Kinoflo Wallolite 750w Kino Flo Celeb 200 2 x Kino Flo barfly 200d 2 x Arrilite 750W Open Face 2 x Kinoflo 4 bank 4ft 2 x Arri 2K Openface 1 x Small Chimera 1 xXS Chimera 1 x Pancake 2 x Arri 650w Fresnel 1 x 350w Filmgear Fresnel 1 x 1000w Arri Fresnel 1 x Aputure LS Panel 1 x 4ft Trace Frame 1 x 3ft Trace Frame 1 x Fast flag Kit 1 x 36" x 24" flag 3 x Magic arms & K-Clamps 12x12 Blackout 16 metres of Bolton blackout 5 x C-Stands Kupo Master High Cine Stand 2 x American Stands 10 x Small light Stands Gel Sets Italian Clamps Gaffer Clamps Poly Clamps Cardellini clamps 27Inch Client Reference Monitor Custom Topdown Rig Ladder Dolly with 1.5metre and 3 metre track
