I had my first 35mm SLR camera when I was 16; it kicked off my interest in photography and visual story telling that I have been following since.
I have directed and shot commercials, promos, docs and a variety of fresh and exciting content for TV, cinema and digital platforms - working with BBC, BBH, Fallon, DKLW Lowe, Mother, The Viral Factory, Al Jazeera and many others. Making documentaries and story packages as well as commercials, promos and content for brands such as VW, Flora, Greenpeace, Rexona, Conran, VIASAT, Canon, Rimmel and the DCMS.
I was an early guinea-pig/adopter of HD and digital formats; my University of Arts graduation film being one of the first to be shot and then projected in full HD at the BFI (NFT1)
I started my Directing career shooting music videos for Rob Dickens (former CEO of Warner Music). I went on to get signed by Tantrum Productions as a Commercials Director. At the same time I was shooting documentaries, promos and digital content including presenter led pieces, obs-doc, nature, beauty, re-enactment and much in-between.
Using drones, underwater cameras, low loaders, gimbals, bicycles, hot air balloons and even a tripod – I employ whatever technology is best used to tell the story and increase the production value – always striving to make the maximum visual impact with the budget and time available.
I have taught short courses on Cinematography at the NFTS for Directors moving from Reality/News/Documentary to Drama. I have also taught at the Central Film School, creating modules on Cinematography, Directing and Visual Story Telling for their BA course.
Previous films I have worked on have won awards, been official selections at major film festivals around the world and have accumulating millions of hits on YouTube. Read Less
