You can check out my recent credits/CV here.
I have extensive experience using the latest broadcast technology, including: RED DSMC2, Arri, Panasonic Varicam, Sony F55, Phantom Flex.
I have built and operated GSS 516 systems on location for vehicle based work.
I also have a range of experience using remote camera setups and bespoke camera traps for broadcast sequences.
I'm a resilient and self-motivated individual that thrives in tough environments, having worked on sequences in locations such as Namibia, Iceland, Costa Rica, Zambia & many more.
Fueled by the innate beauty of the natural world I have always strived to capture unique species and ecosystems through the medium of film. Motivated by the need to protect these iconic creatures and spaces I hope my films go some way to raising awareness of our need to conserve them.
As a graduate from Durham university (Geography BSc (Hons.)) my physical understanding of the landscape intertwines with a deep passion for ecology and the creatures found within these photogenic places.
