I'm an experienced camera operator/assistant with a BSc in Zoology and MA in documentary film from UWE. I rounded off last year by filming drone and second camera on the opening sequence for an upcoming Netflix blue-chip wildlife series. During the first half of 2019 I worked across several blue-chip wildlife shoots for Offspring Films and was the series AC/drone pilot for an ambitious astrobiology series commissioned by Netflix.
My camera experience includes: long lens wildlife filming, obs-doc on the shoulder (Sony FS7), high-speed/slo-mo, using gimbals, aerial filming, camera traps, time-laspe, low-light filming and building macro studio sets.
Prior to that I spent four years working at Icon Films, primarily filming Primal Survivor for National Geographic, which involved living with indigenous communities all over the globe. In addition to a wealth of drone and camera experience I have solid background in sound recording, editing UHD 4K post-production and delivery. While at Icon Films I worked in a range of roles across programs including River Monsters, Jeremy Wade's Mighty Rivers, Savage Kingdom and The One Show.
As well as broadcast TV work I enjoy self-producing my own films and most recently finished a promotional film for The European Nature Trust, documenting a 200km cycle to raise awareness about deforestation in Romania.
I've looked after equipment in extreme environments ranging from arctic Canada to humid Sumatran rainforests to the sulfurous Danakil Depression in Ethiopia - and I'm always up for a new challenge!
Creating an impact through cinematography is my motivation and I'm always willing to learn and experiment with new techniques. Please get in contact about availability or equipment hire using the email link below.
