I’ve been working in the industry for 15-years, and have been freelance for around 8-years now since making the leap from a full time position with Bloomberg TV. My background was initially in live TV and studio work, before embarking on an exciting adventure into the commercial and corporate world. I now provide freelance services to a range of production companies, agencies, clients and broadcaster across the the UK.
My background is in the camera department, but over the past few years I’m been directing more and more content. I am just as happy working as a solo Self-Shooting Director as I am managing and overseeing a 10 person production crew.
I’ve been very lucky over the past few years to get to work on content for some fantastic brands including Mastercard, Vodafone, Sky Sports, Nokia, Oracle, British Gas, Eat Natural, Fitness First, Motorola, NHS, Barco, Korn Ferry, Aptaclub, Adidas, Oakley, Cancer Research, Fatface, Canterbury Clothing, Dacia, Alpha Romeo, Porsche, Countryside Properties, Anglian Water, eToro, Greenpeace, Eat Natural, Nuffield Health, Cosmos, Fedex, Corney and Barrow, Mountain Warehouse and many more…
I worked on all manner of content over the years, which includes; promos, branded content, films, documentaries, talking heads, interviews, case studies, corporate, current affairs, live streaming, training videos, product demos, music videos, expos and events here in the UK and across Europe.
I own a full Sony FS7 kit (4K), which has become my workhorse over the past few years shooting everything from documentaries to promos. Alongside this I also have a large selection of grip, lighting, sound and video kit, as well as having accounts with kit hire companies in London and the South East.
I’m comfortable working on a range of production kit including gimbals, and know my way around everything from a GoPro to an Alexa Mini.
In 2018 I finally decided to get my drone license, completing a 3-day course to gain my Permission for Commercial Operation (PfCO) from the CAA, and have been happily (and safely) flying my Mavic Pro since.
I have a full Adobe Premiere Pro setup, with a 128GB RAM for 4K work. I can work remotely from home or onsite/location as needed with a power Dell XPS 32GB Laptop.
Over the years I have built up a huge pool of freelancers I work with on a regular basis. This includes Directors, Camera Operators, Assistants, 1st AC’s, Sound Recordists, Grips and Gaffers and am happy to organise and provide my own team when required.
