    About me

    I have been freelancing in the film and tv industry for more than a decade, starting out in the film days as a camera assistant before branching out on my own as a DP/Operator.

    I have several years experience working on features, commercials, short films, branded content and music videos.

    A list of convincing reasons to hire me:

    1. I am very nice.

    2. I am very talented.

    3. I have my own camera, lighting and grip gear.

    4. I am very hard working and reliable.

    5. I will say nice things about you to people.

    6. I live in London, but will work anywhere. I have a full, clean driving license.

    7. I have lots of experience, energy and good humour, as well as a calm and friendly demeanour and a relaxed attitude to sleep.

    8. That's surely enough reasons.

    Professional Recommendations

    Daniel Owen van Dommelen Director

    Jim is a fantastic DP, with a very keen sense of composition and lighting.Having him on board for my directorial debut was a huge advantage, since I had both his experience and skill to fall back on.A very precise person, calm and collected, and with a good sense of humor, he brings a great vibe to the set.I hope to be working with Jim again in the future.

    Rises above and beyond the call of duty.A real multi-tasker with highly developed communication skills.
