About me

Cinematographer living and working in London, UK, but happy to travel worldwide for work. -- Although being interested in photography and filmmaking from an early age, Lee went on to study graphic design at Falmouth University at degree level. This gave him a strong foundation of critical thinking, composition skills and use of visual metaphors. Upon completion, however, he very quickly fell back in love with cameras and filmmaking, enjoying its' visceral, human-centric process. For the following 7 years he worked his way through assisting, self-shooting and educating himself in lighting and deep technical understanding of cameras. Editing is one if his strong points, which is a major part of his through process when planning and filming a project. Alongside cinematography, Lee continues to experiment with photography and music production, both of which feed into his work. He enjoys collaborating with a mixed range of creative professionals, from set designers, artists, choreographers and musicians. Experienced in drama, music video, commercial and documentary, I am driven by emotional aspects of narrative, what motivates people to do the things they do, and using a combination of technical detail and abstract beauty to draw an audience into a story. Having worked in a large variety of environments, I am comfortable with different sized crews and can work quickly and efficiently under pressure. I truly love what I do, and want to work alongside directors with vision and attention to detail.
