I am a Surrey based broadcast camera operator with 10 years eperience  working in the television industry specialising mainly in the entertainment and factual sectors.

I can often be found working on multi camera productions including BBC Top Gear, Sky One's 'Rob and Romesh VS' & Netflix 'Babies'.

Pre Covid 19, I regularly traveled with work including Europe, Africa, Middle East, Asia, South Asia and North & South America. I have a lot of experience with carnet's, and safely travelling camera equipment all over the world, including to harsh environments from the heat of the desert to the wilds of Kazakhstan.

I am a hard worker who enjoys working collaboratively to get the best out of any situation and achieve what was intended.

 

I am also an owner operator and can provide competitve camera packages including my Blackmagic Ursa Mini Pro G2 kit which shoots industry standard ProRes 244HQ from HD up to 4K as well as the incredible BRAW codec which is excellent for single camera shoots or bespoke productions requiring high resolution RAW in a space saving codec.

I also enjoy working as a cinematographer on short films and music videos. This is something I am actively pursuing alongside my broadcast career and I'm always looking for new projects to collaborate on so if you have an idea and are in need of a camera operator or DoP, don't hesitate to get in touch. 

 

In my personal time, I am a keen runner who competes in the Surrey cross-country leagues for British Airways AC and represents Shepperton Running Group in other events. To date I have completed 3 marathons and numerous other events with plenty more in the pipeline. 

Dont hesitate to get in touch to see how I can benefit your production.
