Creative, flexible, hard-working DoP/ lighting cameraman

23 years experience in broadcast television, drama, comedy, music video, advertising and corporate production - and learning new things every day.

Technical & Craft

I light as well as shoot, and work with all the latest digital cinema and television cameras, minicams, covert and hidden cameras. Experienced in high-speed, time-lapse and motion control, animation, chroma-key and effects shooting. I can work PSC and multi-camera; without a director or as part of a team; shooting drama, comedy, interviews, live performance, stunts, reconstructions, actuality, augmented reality, presenter-led. I have particularly extensive experience shooting art, music, science and lighting interview talent to look and feel their very best. I love new challenges and staying alert to the fact that the needs of the job change minute by minute.

Latest Equipment

Ready to roll at a moment’s notice, pick and choose from my own comprehensive shooting kit: fully-rigged Sony PXW-Fs7 4K Super35mm camera with timecode back; Sony A7s low-light DSLR; DJI Osmo handheld gimbal; GoPro Hero 7 minicams; full range of prime and zoom lenses and filters; wireless director’s monitor; full lighting kit; basic sound kit; MacBook Pro DIT station; Cineslider and all the grip and bits necessary for smooth performance. Fully-insured and secured with up to 5 passengers in a Euro 6 (London ULEZ compliant) VW Transporter T6.

A Helping Hand

I work regularly for UK productions at home and abroad, and for foreign productions filming in the UK; and like to help out however is needed to help your production run smoothly. I can organise carnets and cost-effective travel kits; source specialist kit and crew; offer advice on filming in the UK; work with your schedule – however tight – for airport, hotel and location transfers; and if you can’t make it over, liaising with any UK contacts you may have, and working flexibly and efficiently to fulfil your filming brief – all the way to the safe and secure back up and delivery of your rushes.
