About me

As a DP my aim is always to enhance the story being told on screen. My passion for both the creative and technical aspects of the process are evident in all my work and in the variety of projects I have undertaken and I enjoy experimenting with different styles and techniques to achieve the right look. I am comfortable and competent shooting on all formats from film to HD to 4K. In addition I am a GBCT trained steadicam operator.
