ABOUT ME

Howdy, I'm a Birmingham/London based Camera Operator and Director of Photography, with 10 years industry experience shooting and lighting a wide range of Commercial, Narrative, Corporate and Factual content.  

My Career began after graduating University with a BSc Hons in Film Production Technology. I spent a couple of years assisting on various TV Dramas and Live Studio shows, before eventually operating on Corporate projects and narrative films all over the UK. 

To date, I've shot several award winning feature films, a Cannes funded short and several Commercial films for National and International Organisations.

I shoot with my own Cameras, which includes a Sony FX6 and Sony A7 kit, but I am very familiar with ARRI systems too, including the Mini-LF and Amira.
