    About me

    I am a multi-skilled and reliable Camera Operator / Self Shooting PD experienced in live broadcast and factual entertainment, across formats ranging from HD, DVCAM to 16mm, working in a studio and on location. Credits include 'ZDF', 'News International', 'Sky Sports', 'The Oprah Show' and 'Talkback Thames'.

    I am extremely confident in my ability to be a creative visionary, with the acuity to identify and deal with, potential problems before they materialise as well as the drive to do whatever it takes to provide engaging content. My hands-on production skills are second to none and I have an excellent working technical knowledge of various cameras, lenses, lighting and grip equipment as well as knowing the Sony XDCAM and DSR ranges inside out. I am proficient in PSC and ENG camera operation and am equally comfortable in multi-camera, OB and studio environments.

    Extensive experience in team and solo camera operation, directing and producing has enabled me gain sound editorial judgment and a full grasp of the intrinsic workings of idea development, shooting-to-edit and self-directing with an editor in mind. I am calm when working under pressure, to tight deadlines and adapting to last minute changes or shooting priorities whilst maintaining complete control throughout. I really enjoy supporting the entire production team with my visual composition, precise attention to detail and ability to be diplomatic in sensitive situations.

    I continually strive to hone my communication skills to ensure a clear level of understanding with all members of the team and I am proactive in seeking to update my skills at every opportunity to become as learned and effective as possible. I am fully Mac/PC literate and well versed in Final Cut Pro, Adobe Photoshop and standard Office packages.

    I live to experience life through the lens so you will always find me an enthusiastic team player who has a professional work ethic, is prepared to travel at short notice and work long hours with passion, stamina and a big smile.
