    About me

    Im a 27 year old Freelance Camera Operator and DoP. As a freelancer i have worked on a wide range of productions from TV to Film to web based media to documentaries.

    I am a very keen film maker/writer. And have penned a couple of short films, and television pilots due to be filmed in spring and summer of 2014.

    Ive worked mainly as a camera operator and DoP on a number of short films and music videos, as well as a couple of corperate films.

    I am currently run and produce a youtube channel with a colleague dedicated to live performances from bands working in and around manchester. We launched the channel just before christmas 2013, and have been approached by numerous bands and people just wanting to be involved.

    on the side I have written a full mini series for a drama set in a zombie apocolypse for TV. I also assist in writing a comedy web series also based in a zombie apocolypes. On top of those, ive written a few short documentary films i want to produce this year.

    Outside of film making, i'm a keen mountain biker and musician.

    I'm generally try to stay fit and keep active by playing football, basketball and squash, as well as mountain biking.

    I do what i do for the love of the job. I enjoy being paid for it, but i have often waded into projects for free because i like the concept or think i can help improve the production. On set, im easy to talk to, i like to tailor my working habits to those around me and try to be as productive as i can without imposing on other areas when possible. I think im a calm logical thinker, which so far has served me well in a number of environments when stress and tension has been high.

    i look forward to any opportunities i get and work to pretty high standards.
