    Professional Recommendations

    Jack Harrison Camera Assistant

    I thoroughly enjoyed working with James on the TV Pilot 'Luckless'. James has a great deal of experience and was a fantastic 1st AC. With minimal fuss, he executed complicated focus pulls and was efficient in setting up equipment. Furthermore, James was knowledgeable about the Arri Alexa and was helpful in troubleshooting when it was necessary. I would recommend James to anyone who is looking for a thorough and talented 1st AC. He's also a good crack and it's great to have fellow Northerners on set. I hope to work together in the future.Jack

    Paul McKenna Gaffer

    James is a committed and talented camera assistant who applies his wealth of knowledge with professionalism and enthusiasm.

    Steve Marshall Director of Photography

    James is a fantastic Camera Assistant. Extremely knowledgable and versatile. He's a regular in my camera crew.
