I am a steadicam operator with a passion for my work and what it can bring onto the screen.
I have worked as a camera rental house technician, 2nd camera assistant, 1st camera assistant and have also been teaching my technical skills in a film school as a film lecturer.
I believe in working the shot to perfection, rehearsing every moment to get the shot the DOP and director want. I have worked my skill set to adapt to every shoot, and I constantly push to further my knowledge and abilities of my craft.
My steadicam exprience includes working on feature film ALLIES set in WW2 where I operated both A camera handheld and on steadicam for various battle scenes. I have worked on the award winning short film THE VOICE IN THE HEAD. I have shot commercials for SONY and the PS VITA, as well as CARPHONE WAREHOUSE and the phone app CLASH OF KINGS. There have also been many music videos including the now famous track IN2 by WSTRN.
