About me

Camera Experience including the new RED Helium 8K, Sony F55, Fs7, Canon C-series, VR cameras (Nokia Ozo, Jaunt) Gimbal (Movi/Ronin), Easyrigs, Motion Controlled timelapse, Long Lens, Camera Trap rigging and remote operating. I've worked on shoots from BBC Springwatch for broadcast, to shooting VR for Gucci. Whilst Wildlife, Travel and Adventure Documentary is my main line of work, you'll often find me shooting music promos and putting my technical skillset to good use. I have a good understanding of production all round which I hope makes me a valuable team member, and travel around the world regularly with kit so have a strong head for logistics. I also shoot stills for both magazine articles (occasionally writing), outdoors brands and pleasure. When not working, you'll find me mountain biking, climbing or hiking in the mountains somewhere.
