    About me

    Since graduating in 2013 with a BA in Film & Television production I have worked as a freelancer, creating content for big named brands through to shooting full length broadcast programmes. I have travelled the globe for work, from Frankfurt to Barbados and have experience dealing with important clients or celebrities.

    I specialise in Steadicam & gimbal operation and in creative cinematic interviews through the use of an electronic curved slider. This allows me to operate multiple rigs at the same time, offering a selection of alternate angles and produces a subtle motion whilst keeping the subject framed. This is both cinematic and cost effective as it eliminates the need for a second operator.

    I have experience within each department of a typical production. I feel that this makes me an effective and efficient self-shooter as I can draw on my experience and shoot accordingly, for example I can film with the edit in mind. Whilst I am skilled in technical operation and cinematic filming I believe that the content is what appeals to the audience. With this in mind I adapt my style to suit the desired tone. Whether I am producing content that is inspirational, informative or emotional I aim to engage the audience. My work generates results.

    I am a creative filmmaker and an efficient problem solver. I like to operate with a positive attitude and have very good communication skills. I am organised, approachable and professional, with experience managing a production solely or through working as team. I am passionate about my work and I have a good work ethic.

    I am experienced with a wide range of equipment and I am a fast learner with an interest for learning further. I am experienced in cameras from Canon DSLRs to the mighty RED Epic and have edited on Final Cut X, Adobe premiere Pro and Avid media composer. In addition to this I colour through DaVinci resolve or Premiere Pro and generate effects through after effects.

    Additional Information

    In addition to this I also boast an impressive selection of high-end equipment. This includes 4K Ultra high definition cameras, full lighting and sound recording equipment as well as some special tools such as an electrical slider that provides excellent interviews and can be used as an unmanned second camera. My Steadicam equipment allows for inner ear radio contact and the ability to monitor wirelessly if needed.

    I am also efficient in editing and colouring, should post-production work be required.
