Director of Photography
I started my career as a self-shooting director out of necessity. So I built years of experience with my own range of clients producing, directing, shooting and editing content for business's all over the UK.
However, as I trained as a cinematographer at film school, I eventually found myself pushing myself more stylistically towards narrative based work. This has lead to me being hired more as a shooter for hire for agencies and production companies around the country.
As a Cinematographer, and I've been lucky enough with some big opportunities making narrative shorts. I've shot two Arts Council Funded Films, several shorts for the British Film Institute (BFI), as well as many other funded projects.
My latest short films 'Kiddo' &'Dead Skin' have been selected at multiple BAFTA qualifying film festivals around the UK as well as major genre festivals worldwide.
I also have a strong passion for documentary and have made many branded shorts for clients such as Quorn & the Waterbear Network. My last two docs; 'Farm Under the City' and 'Journey to Jagdula' both had world wide festival appearances getting into BAFTA qualifying events such as Bolton International & Norfolk International, as well as across the pond at Vancouver Mountain Festival and America's biggest; Doc NYC.
Documentary allows me to work on a more immediate form that engages and stimulates me, bringing fresh ideas back into my other work. Narrative allows me to bring my lighting and large scale set experience onto commercials and promotional films.
Amongst this I am still shooting an array of corporate, promotional and music content as a Director of Photography or Camera Operator.
