With hundreds of hours of logged flight time across both drone and FPV, I possess a seasoned understanding of drone operations and safety protocols. I am adept at achieving airspace flight permissions, creating flight plans, conducting risk assessments and working with a variety of stakeholders to achieve safe flight.

As a drone pilot I am proficient at executing aerial manoeuvres, often under time, location or environmental constraints, yet consistently capturing stunning visuals that elevate productions.

As a second cameraman, I am experienced and competent at providing team and equipment support, as well as anticipating the main camera's needs, ensuring smooth transitions and seamless coverage.

My experience ranges from television productions to live broadcast of sporting events, where I've delivered breath-taking aerial footage that seamlessly integrates with the overall narrative.

I thrive in dynamic environments; I am highly experienced at working on location and managing the pressures associated with this unique style of filming. My calm and happy demeanour and collaborative spirit make me a valuable crew member, readily adapting to different shooting demands and contributing effectively to achieving the director's vision.

My diverse production credits, which include Amazing Railway Adventures with Nick Knowles for Channel Five (two seasons), Britains' Best Places to Live for Channel Five, Ainsley Harriott's Good Mood Food for ITV and World Sailing International Regatta for Eurosport (live broadcast), demonstrate my adaptability and dedication to broadcast television. I have filmed across the UK, EU and even as far as Morocco, having been one of only three international drone pilot to obtain permissions to fly there.

I'm confident that my combined and versatile skillset as both drone operator and second cameraman makes me a strong candidate for this position, and I'm eager to contribute to your team's success.
