I'm based near London, England and have been shooting broadcast footage for 20 years. When I started as a lighting cameraman 16mm film cameras were still used on a fairly regular basis. These formative years, working with film, set me up for life with the knowledge and shooting discipline that is often not learned in today's tapeless world. The result is footage that is comprised of well framed, properly exposed and hopefully pin-sharp images.


I shoot with the latest camera kit, HD in all forms, XDCAM HD, HDCAM, P2, Sony's PMW F55 and Canon's C300 cinema super 35mm cameras. I can record all footage to 4:2:2 50mb/s.

I have a long list of lovely sound recordists, camera assistants and electricians, all of who are a joy to work with. 

I have six years editing experience with Final Cut Pro and have produced many programmes for a number of high profile corporate clients. 

Have a look at my CV to see the sort of stuff I've been working on over the years.
