Director of Photography shooting feature film, short film and commercial production.

I film across all digital cinema formats, specialising in digital 35mm camera operating & lighting.

I enjoy various lighting techniques and set ups. I shoot a lot with large soft sources, and wall bounces and combine this with as much natural light as possible, which has become my main style of lighting over the last few years. I tend to attack each set up, by seeing how much of the natural light and 'on location' lights I can use, before complimenting it with artificial sources.

Although I will always shoot in a style that the project and story needs, I prefer to shoot reactively. Not quite in a documentary style, but I do enjoy shooting hand held and following the story as the actors and locations reveal it. I especially like shooting a scene with stripped down camera and finding new and experimental angles s well as different ways of telling a story.

I have shot films across the UK and Europe, working with local and foreign crews.
