ABOUT ME

I'm a Cinematographer & Camera Operator based in the West Midlands. With around 10 years industry experience, I now shoot and light a wide range of Commercial, Corporate and Narrative content.  

My Career began after graduating University with a BSc Hons in Film Production Technology. I spent several years assisting on various British TV Dramas, before eventually stepping into a Studio operating role, for an independent channel. 

Now, I shoot for a variety of Production Companies across the UK, predominantly with my own equipment - the Sony FX6 and Sony A7SIII. However, I am also familiar with other systems, including ARRI, RED and Canon.
