Bio :
After leaving college studying Media and Communication Luke started his career in Film and TV working as a Runner at award winning post-production company Framestore-CFC. framestore-cfc.com

After a year of working as a Runner and gaining an insight about the processes of post-production special effects, he then went onto work for one of the worlds largest camera rental house's ARRI Media arrimedia.com as a camera technician working with 16mm and 35mm motion picture cameras as well as Digital camera's such as the Arri D21 and the new Arri ALEXA camera.

He began making music videos over weekends for unsigned bands. Luke would self produce his videos as well as direct them which then caught the attention of a few major record labels who would send him tracks of newly signed artists to pitch on.

After shooting a number of videos whilst at ARRI he then left in 2009 to pursue his directing career where he was then signed up as a Director at Gas & Electric, a production company for music video's and commercials.

Luke is also a keen extreme sports enthusiast, he loves to Skateboard, Snowboard, Wakeboard, Surf, Casterboard, Rock Climb and Waterski.
