ABOUT ME

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, Corporate and Factual content.  

My Career began after graduating University with a BSc Hons in Film Production Technology. I spent several years assisting on various British TV Dramas, before eventually stepping into a Factual Camera Operating role, for an independent channel. 

Now, I shoot for a variety of independent Production Companies across the UK, predominantly with my own equipment, the Sony FX6 and Sony A7SIII. However, I am also familiar with other systems, including ARRI, RED and Canon.
