An award winning, highly creative & technical Shooting Series PD. BBC trained, with finely tuned editorial instincts. Experienced in shooting, directing & shaping whole series and crafting killer narratives, from pre-production through to the edit.
Multiple obs doc, human interest and presenter-led credits: from blue light, animal rescue and shiny floor studio shows, to property, weddings and teen mums. Able to tease out the drama, comedy or jeopardy in every scene.
Sensitive examples include a murder investigation for ITV, police raids on organised gangs for BBC One, following sniffer dog handlers and female Muslim boxers for The One Show and directing drama reconstruction inside prisons. I have explored mental health, childbirth, benefits, drug use and more.
I have followed contributors from all walks of life, including, doctors, midwives, travel agents, bridezillas, disabled people and paramedics.
I have interviewed and directed the likes of Frank Skinner, Louis Theroux, Matt Baker, Miriam Margolyes, JLS, Felicity Kendal & fresh talent such as Mehreen Baig.
Other career highlights incl. shoots in South Africa & Spain, shaping Sarah Beeny’s new property series for UKTV, which performed 50% above the slot average & developing my own series optioned by an indie.
I enjoy following character-led storylines as they develop, maintaining relationships over long periods & navigating complex access & immersive filming with vulnerable contributors.
Recent DBS certificate. Full, clean driving license & valid passport.
I shoot on FS7, C300, PMW300/200, XF305, A7S & 5D cameras and have my own C300 camera kit. I am a trained editor (Avid, FCP & Premier). Read Less
