About me

I will probably always call myself an "Aspiring DP" as the greats i hold as role models have that bar so high that one can only hope to reach it. I have a passion for lighting and composition, you wont find me without my Light meter and I created compositional guides for SmallHD's 500 and 700 series monitors, i take the effect lighting and composition has on the viewer extremely seriously.

I have shot reality television shows in Gozo and london, commercial films in Sweden, music videos in Berlin, I spent a year following the British Superbike Championship from the heart of the pit lane and I make my living as a camera operator, gaffer and DP, lighting and shooting music video, documentaries, short films and commercials.

I consider myself a craftsman.

Additional Information

I have set out to find DP narrative and commercial roles but love lighting so much that Gaffer suits me very well, of course operating is closer to where i want to be.

I own and can operate the Sony PXW-FS5 camera, it is enabled for 4K raw output. I have two rehoused cine zooms and a host of smaller image stabilised zooms to cover the bases for budget conscience clients. I have my own set of 650 Fresnel's lights, stands, filters and modifiers as well as a Hague K14 Jib. This is a simple yet professional camera package and I am familiar with many other camera platforms including the Arri Amira and have used a large array of lighting equipment.

I have been shooting video for around 8 years, I have operated for live streams in sports production, rigged broadcast systems for simple single and multi screen relays via vision mixers, have shot episodic reality television, have shot live news for RTUK (Russia Today) as a studio camera operator, I have DP'd a host of short films and vignettes for festival submission. I have created video productions for RedBull, BMW, Kawasaki, BUPA, SpireGTR cars, Tanita Europe and for independent and team managed athletes and models.
