    About me

    I am a freelance lighting camera operator and cinematographer with over six years experience in filming drama, events, promotional videos and documentary, both as a lone operator and under direction.

    I have a solid understanding of content narrative and visual storytelling, and am confident using a vast number of cameras including large sensor digital cinema cameras such as Sony FS7, Canon C300mk2, Black Magic Ursa Mini Pro, Arri and RED, as well as DSLRs. I am passionate about lighting and experienced in shooting handheld as well as using a variety of grip kit including slider, dolly, crane and gimbal, and have recorded sound on a variety of factual projects, including broadcast.

    I have previously proven my ability to perform under pressure in a variety of challenging environments both on remote locations and in the studio, and have developed strong people skills working with talent and contributors from all backgrounds and walks of life, including sensitive and vulnerable ones.

    Please have a look at my showreel and don't hesitate to get in touch!
