I've 15+ years experience in factual television, documentaries and commercial work. I specialise in outdoor adventure and foreign travel. I'm on the books with National Geographic for TV, website and audio content. Most notable recent gig was organising and shooting for Netflix's Snowpiercer season 3 on location in Yemen again. I'm well used to working with presenters or contributors in a self-directed capacity, such as recently with the Nat Geo and BBC science presenter Ella Al-Shamahi.
I found myself heading off with her to a remote Yemeni Island on a rickety cockroach infested wooden cargo boat. https://youtu.be/IMzXzyL37DY

I'm comfortable with short or long-term projects, delivering series from conception, shooting to edit producing. I am mid wales based in the well-connected university town of Aberystwyth, but have the ability to stay in London and the South West. I own a shooting kit with a Mercedes crew van suitable for overnight stays. I am broadcast camera trained, having worked for crew and kit hire provider in London at the beginning of my career. Experience with a range of cameras I can shoot with ENG styled cameras, FS7, Canon C300's, Red's and mirrorless cameras. I am a CAA PFCO certified operator.

I'm affable and professional. I know how to get excellent imagery, audio and shoot for the edit.
In the past I have spent 4 months on the road for a Nat Geo series to Mongolia and spent 5 weeks trekking through the Australian bush. In the UK I walked 500 miles around Wales for a documentary carrying my equipment with me.
Interesting fact about myself. In 2019 I was asked to manage Bardsey Island off the Welsh coast, with my young family, living in an off-grid house and no inside toilet. It was an unforgettable if windy experience.

Editing.
I have edit directed and edited a number of long and short form projects using Avid Media Composer. I can also use Davinci Resolve. Read Less
