About Me

I'm an experienced camera operator/assistant with a BSc in Zoology and MA in documentary film from UWE. I really enjoy working with animals as well as with people and always strive to put raise the production value of any documentary film through considered composition, use of natural light, epic aerials and silky gimbal moves.

I'm currently working full time at Plimsoll Productions as Jr Wildlife Camera Operator. Recent credits to air include Earth at Night in Colour (AppleTV+ - Best Cinematography Team RTS West award winner), Alien Worlds (Netflix), Waterhole: Africa's Animal Oasis (BBC NHU), Prince William: A Planet for Us All (ITV), Welcome to Earth with Will Smith (NatGeo) and Expedition with Steve Backshall S2 (UKTV).

My wildlife filming experience includes: Shotover M1, long lens hide work, high-speed (Phantom), rigging gimbals from boats/vehicles, camera traps, time-laspe, low-light filming, wireless focus pull, IRATA ropes access, remote PTZ head, underwater housings/polecam and thermal imaging (Superhawk).

Having worked on a mixture of blue-chip natural history, tribe/survival and adventure series over the last five years helps me take a creative approach to any documentary filming situation - no matter how challenging the environment.
