I’m a Freelance Lighting Cameraman/DoP with over 20 years of experience filming a wide range of award winning programmes for the BBC, C4, C5, Sky, Discovery and many Indie, Commercial and Corporate production companies.
I am easy and fun to work with, working well within a team, as multi camera or on my own as a single unit. I have gained a reputation for being creative, instinctively getting those extra shots and reliable with an eye for producing quality images and sequences whatever the location or situation.
I have had the pleasure to work on a diverse range of programmes, with amazing people creating content that has been seen around the world. From Documentaries, Natural History, OB’s, Entertainment, Sport, Live Broadcast, Pop Promos, Drama, Commercials, Factual, Magazine and Corporate programmes, I’m at home on location, in the studio with actors or presenters and the general public.
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.
I have an extensive range of equipment and I am familiar with the latest camera formats. Sony: 500, F55, FS7. Canon: DSLR, C300. Arri: Alexa, Amira, Mini. Red: Dragon, Scarlet. Osmo. Go Pros.
