    About me

    Hello. I'm James - a camera operator and camera assistant. I was a former combat photographer in the RAF and have a background in documentary filmmaking. I'm currently based in the north of the UK, Manchester, but work frequently down south where I have a base in Greenwich.

    I work as a cinematographer on small to medium budget shorts, commercials, and documentaries.

    On features, and high-end productions I am a professional camera trainee, and junior 2nd AC / loader. I support the operation of the camera department.

    Whatever I do, I aspire to build a connection with the audience. That tingle, we all get when a moment resonates with us; whether it's expressed as an adrenaline-fuelled chest-bump, a cascade of goosebumps, a barrel roar of laughter or a simple smile. Connection is key.
