Background

In 1999 I graduated with a BA in Video Production from the American Intercontinental University in London.
From 1999 to 2003 I trained and worked at Hammerhead TV as camera technician and camera assistant.
From 2003 worked as a freelance camera assistant / focus puller.
From 2009 I moved on to work as a lighting cameraman / DOP.

I have extensive experience working with nearly every video format that has been around, used most types of lights and in the case of a new bit of kit, I can quickly get stuck in and learn about it. One of the things I love about the work I do is the team work required to turn a near impossible schedule or task into a success. There are always times when I could spend more time lighting, setting up shots or discussing why my ideas are better than others but as they say, there is no I in team, and I know when to knuckle down and get the job done. I feel I bring a hardworking, consistent, reliable personality with a good understanding of the difficulties faced in today’s productions to every shoot.
