About me

I am a Director of Photography (Grad Dip Cinematography at AFTRS & BA Communications (Media Arts and Production) at UTS) based in Sydney with over 15 years’ experience stretching across Feature films, Documentaries, TVCs, Content, Corporate, Music Videos and VR 360. My most recent long form work includes feature length films “The Combination 2: The Hard Road”, “The Pretend One”, “Zach’s Ceremony”, “Thrown into this World” and “Legacy”, TV series “Making Families Happy” and various shows for “ Rooster Teeth” and the “Disney Channel”, with some of my commercial clients being Westpac, ANZ, Commonwealth Bank, St George, Chivas, Salesforce, Pacific Magazines, Redbull, Australian Defence Force, Nature’s own, Ancestry.com, V Energy, Sony, Coke, Optus and Virgin. Some of the projects I have worked on have been lucky enough to win some awards. In 2016, Zach’s Ceremony won “Audience Choice Award” at both SIFF and MIFF, the TVC “Sea Shepard” won a Canne Lion and Mumbrella: Campaign of the year, 35 Letters won “Best Documentary” at SIFF and in 2013, I was also nominated by AACTA for “Best Cinematography in a documentary” and won “Best Feature length Documentary” and the International 3D Society for “Best 3D in a Documentary” for my work on Storm Surfers 3D. I have also received numerous awards over the years from my peers at the Australian Cinematographers Society (ACS).
