    About me

    I am a London based lighting cameraman and DOP with almost 15 years of experience currently working for the BBC.

    During these years I have been collaborating with the main broadcasters around the globe such as BBC, ABC, Sky, Channel 5, Fox, ARD, CNBC, France 24, Al Jazeera...

    In my career I have dealt with a great variety of genres from features, shorts, documentaries, commercials, music videos to corporate and news.

    Having worked for so many years on different projects equipped me with a great flexibility and strong understanding of production requirements .

    My calm attitude and professionalism enable me to establish immediately a good relationship with producers and directors and to bring their vision to life quickly and creatively. I love the poetic of images and good story telling.

    Thanks to my professional studies in photography and lighting ("BBC academy Lighting Course”, “ARRI Academy Lighting Course”) I have a particular flair for frame composition and lighting.

    Additional Information

    I have a broad knowledge of broadcast cameras such as DigiBeta, XDCAM and digital cinematography cameras such as Sony F5/FS7, Canon C100/300, Blackmagic Ursa Mini and Digital SLRs.

    Strong knowledge of studio environment: vision mixer, audio and lighting desks, lighting, radio mics, camera line up (CCU), camera and pedestal operation, Jimmy Jib...

    Able to edit both in FCP, Premiere Pro, Da Vinci Resolve. Proficient in Photoshop, Lightroom and the main Dvd authoring software. Moreover certificate in IT User Skills (ECDL Extra) (ITQ) (QFC).
