I have been freelance since 2011, when I left a full-time position with Bloomberg News in London to go on an exciting venture into the commercial and corporate world. My work over the past 9-years has seen me shoot nearly everything you could think of including documentary, branded content, corporate, events, music videos, promos, talking heads, broadcast and commercials for a huge range of clients and sectors.
I come from a technical operations background, with much of my initial experience in studio productions, which has given me a great founding for the work I do today as a Director, DOP, Camera Operator, Gimbal Operator and Editor.
I’ve been lucky enough to work with some fantastic brands over the years including Adidas, Oakley, Vodafone, Mastercard, Samsung, Nokia, Barco, Eat Natural, Aspall, IG, Fitness First, Motorola, MG, NHS, Oracle and British Gas to name just a few.
My work these days see me working on a variety of projects, from small projects as a Self-Shooting Producer/Director to large scale promos and TV commercials heading up a 9-10 person production team.
I’m based in sleepy Suffolk, near to Framlingham but my work takes me all over the world, from Brighton to Beijing, and I’ve been lucky enough to have seen some amazing places and meet so many inspirational people along the way. I have easy access to East Anglia, London, South East, Midlands and Home Counties, and am experienced travelling abroad with and without kit, arranging permits and carnets where necessary.
I have a large amount of kit which I own and use on a regular basis, including a brand new Sony FX9 full frame camera.
My kit includes:
Sony FX9 (4K)
Set Xeen CF Cine Lenses (24/50/85)
Sigma 24-70mm F2.8
Sigma 50mm F1.4
Sony 70-200mm F4
Sacthler FS10 Flowtech Fluid Tripod
19″ 4K Atomos Sumo Monitor/Recorder
5″ 4K Atomos Ninja Monitor/Recorder
2x Aputure 300D LED
DJI Ronin SC Gimbal
Sennheiser G3 Radio Mic
For post production I can provide on site editing with a Dell XPS 32GB laptop, or working remotely on a 128GB RAM AMD Ryzen PC ideal for 4K post production work
As well as my own kit, I’m comfortable shooting on a variety of cameras covering everything from a GoPro to an Alexa Mini. I have a number of accounts with hire companies across the UK, as well as a really strong pool of trusted and reliable freelancers I work with including 1st ACs, Camera Operators, Assistants, Sound Recordists, Grips and Gaffers and am happy to provide my own crew if required.
