I am an experienced camera operator and a BAFTA New Talent winning filmmaker. I offer over seven years experience filming for global brands, live international broadcast (single and multi-camera), commercials and feature documentary. As a freelance camera operator I have worked for a variety of broadcasters such as BBC, Channel 4, Arte and the Smithsonian Channel. Brands include Heineken, Adobe, Red Bull and Visit Britain.

I am a versatile camera operator and editor working across the UK with a range of formats as well as steadicam and multi-cam shooting. Keeping pace with the talent I have harnessed up, climbed, ice skate, skied and ran in-chase after a world-class freerunners. I have worked with talent at the summit of Britain's tallest mountain and at the country's landmarks.

Whatever the content I pride myself on my energy, professionalism and creative approach to briefs. With a passion for travel I always enjoy being sent on assignment to film new places and people and sharing their stories.

I travel UK wide with my own camera, lighting kits and vehicle. Whatever the content I pride myself on my professionalism and creative approach to briefs. I am an experienced interviewer, dealing with sensitive subjects and directing on-camera talent. My experience allows for flexibility and good humour in the face of changing demands and I bring editor’s perspective and a ‘can do’ attitude to everything I shoot.
