LIGHTING CAMERAMAN
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. 
 
DIRECTOR/CAMERAMAN
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.  
 
VIDEO EDITOR
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.
