I’m a professional freelance lighting cameraman and editor based in Bristol with over 20 years experience, and thrive on the creative challenge of any production, from a one day shoot to longer projects.
TV / Film
ENG, EFP, PSC, live TV - Experienced in shooting with any size of budget and crew. Skilled at working with a director to achieve the desired look and feel of any production for clients such as RDF, Sky, Channel 4 and BBC as well as a host of corporate clients.
When the budget does not stretch to a director and a cameraman, I easily direct every aspect of a shoot, confidently building the theme, structure and characters as well as managing all of the technical aspects - ensuring that the client sees their vision come to life.
I'm a seasoned editor used to managing a variety of camera footage, audio, sound and special effects to produce high quality video projects - Premiere Pro is my go-to package. I can also edit on location for quick turnarounds and uploads if required.

I’ve worked in the media industry all of my adult life. I started as a camera assistant on television and drama productions, learning from a variety of talented professionals. Quickly establishing myself as a staff cameraman and an editor in a variety of production companies around Scotland before moving to Bristol and going freelance in 2002 and have never looked back. I love what I do and wouldn't change it for the world!
