About me


I am a freelance lighting cameraman, editor and DOP of fifteen years experience. My recent work has been mainly lots of TV commercials, both regional and national. Besides this I edit; and operate cameras on and lots of Outside Broadcasts for Sky Sports, BBC and ITV football, rugby and boxing; mainly at the weekend.

My PSC experience also includes promos, music videos, live events, lifestyle, corporate, docs and drama. I have used most digital formats especially Arri Alexa, Red One, Red Epic, Canon C300, X305 Sony F3, EX, XDCAM and DSLRS.

II have produced dozens of TV ads from script to screen including all post production including FCP, After Effects, grading and sound mixing. I am used to meetingt  the technical requirements of broadcast compliance and working within tight deadlines. I have also directed numerous TV ads.

My sports work includes hundreds of OB's for Premier League football where, I specialise in the demanding camera 3 postion amongst others.
I have operated my specialist cameras including 3D, remote minis, radio cams hoists and ENG. The highlight of my sports work was the Champions League Final at Wembley in 2011

I would describe myself as friendly and professional with a good sense of humour.
