I have a wealth of experience, which I can bring to your shoot from working on a wide mix of genres from Documentaries, Natural History, Entertainment, Pop Promos, Magazine programmes, Drama and Factual programmes on location and in the studio with actors, presenters and the public at large.
I have gained a reputation for being creative, instinctively getting those extra shots the director was not expecting, reliable with and an eye for producing quality images and sequences whilst remaining easy and fun to work with.
I love the variety of filming styles I do. I am more than happy filming hand held on the move for a documentary, to a complicated lighting rig with my camera on a jib or dollie for a Commercial.
Filming up a hill, on a boat, on top of a windmill, on horse back riding backwards, in the woods, on the coast filming a beautiful sunrise for Countryfile; on Bonneville Salt Falts, in Japan or around Europe with the latest cars for Top Gear; Wild life in Costa Rica filming Leather Back Turtles; four years filming around the wild life parks of England for ITV, looking at the odd antique on Bargain Hunt and Flog It, filming holiday programmes in the Caribbean and Australia; to releasing bears back into the wild in Boise, USA.
I love it all.
Lighting makes a shot, whether it’s a simple interview situation that still requires quality lighting. A drama set, either in the studio or on location, where you can create different atmospheres with your lighting: a candle lit dinner, sunlight streaming through windows or a moonlit night scene with an air of mystery. Still life advertising shots of food, drink and anything else you can think of, or a car that requires its graceful lines to be shown and not destroyed.
Based at various locations around the country, I can be local to your shoot: The South West, Wales, The Midlands, The North East, London and Scotland.
