I’m a Lighting Cameraman based in London, with over 7 years of experience working mainly as a freelancer.
I’ve worked in both TV stations and on film sets, and previously managed a video production company which I co-founded. My expertise extends across commercials, corporate videos, reports, live shows, live events, music videos, interviews, documentaries, feature films and news, mostly in the field but also in studio.
As a Master in the Anthropology of Culture and as part of my job, I’m keen to travel long distances. I’m accustomed to and enjoy working in tough, challenging environments including regions that may be considered politically unstable. To date I have filmed in Sudan, Rwanda, Mali, Japan, Venezuela and Pakistan. I am also partial to working with extreme sports and have experience driving 4×4 vehicles.
I’m a member of GTC and BECTU.
