About Me

I am a confident, efficient and friendly cameraperson with a keen creative eye. I have excellent problem-solving skills, patience and adaptability.

Most recently I’ve shot main camera for a 60″ episode of the BBC One popular science strand “The Truth About Antibiotics” which will feature Angela Rippon, main camera on a 30″ episode of “Civilisations Stories”, and main camera (or, in the past, second camera) on around 30 VTs for “The One Show”. I have also camera assisted on 2 series of “Extreme Wales” for BBC Wales, and one episode of Channel 4’s “Escape to the Chateau”.

I have experience working on foreign shoots and am used to fast turnarounds with limited budgets. I also have a lot of experience dealing with multiple action cam workflows on outdoor adventure shoots.

I have a PfCO permission from the CAA to fly a drone in the UK (and own a DJI Mavic Pro), an I-Visa to work in the USA which is valid until 2023, and also speak conversational Spanish if any of those things come up!
