|My introduction to image capture was as a photographer, i have been published in sports journals but my main focus has always been in motion pictures and becoming a DP. 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 and take the effect this has on the viewer extremely seriously, i love practical lights in my frames, if i can fool you into thinking that simple lamp is lighting those characters on screen then my job is done technically but how you feel about them is where i leave my mark. |
My recent history is in Broadcast video capture but i have spent the past two years studying and refining my approach as a DP and acquiring practical on set experience.
|I have set out to find DP roles but love lighting so much that Gaffer suits me very well, of course operating is closer to where i want to be but i find these main roles closest to my heart.|
I own and can operate the Blackmagic Cinema Camera 2.5k MFT and the Panasonic AF100, i have a host of Prime lenses rated at F1.0 and two F2 zooms, i also have my own set of 650 Fresnel's lights, stands and filters as well as a Hague K14 Jib.
I have been shooting and editing video in the sports, commercial and corporate sectors for around 4 years. I have operated and rigged broadcast systems for simple single and multi screen relays via a direct connection and via screen switchers to a fully live streamed event with me operating for the entire day as the main Camera. I have created video productions for RedBull, BMW, Kawasaki, BUPA, SpireGTR Sports cars, Tanita Europe and for independent and team managed athletes.
I created XSVpro as a way to promote myself and paid clients within sports based promotions. I have helped generate close to half a million online views and have brought audiences from around the world to brands via social media.
