Toni & Guy and Agent Provocateur have commissioned model photography, while Manic Street Preachers and Tricky rank among the 200+ music videos I’ve worked on. There’s also the award-winning documentary Gore Vidal: The United States of Amnesia, where I served as Director of Photography.

I specialise in corporate, portrait and model photography but am also expanding into aerial photography, using a Tarot X6 Hexacopter to capture 4K drone footage. As a freelance cameraman, my equipment and expertise are available for shoots throughout Greater London. I provide complete packages to suit all budgets, including filming, video editing, colour correction and photography.

Shooting packages can incorporate a daily rate for commercials, films, music videos and documentaries, while my Avid Editing services can be performed remotely or from central offices with the client present.

My services are tailored to any budget and can be digital or film based. I can also negotiate discounted lighting and grip packages through affiliated companies.
