**Check out Nicocam.com for more info** I am an award winning lighting cameraman, DOP & aerial drone pilot with industry-grade kit, including the recent Canon C500 Mark II. I have dual UK & French Nationality enabling me to still work and travel across Europe with no Visas. I specialise in documentary filming, but also have experience across a broader spectrum of projects such as entertainment, sports and live/pre-recorded studio. I also provide services to create full productions from films to corporate videos to promos.

My strengths on location consist of producing high quality work efficiently, tackling sensitive subjects and having strong communication skills with presenters and contributors. I’ve learnt to navigate challenging environments including those that have required special access. I will always do my utmost to get the best shot. This includes creating the best lighting too; something that I enjoy and excel at, particularly for interviews.

I own the recent Canon C500 Mark II along with a range of lenses, sound and lighting equipment. I can also easily acquire any other or additional equipment through tried and tested kit houses.

I love the outdoors and extreme sports therefore am able to adapt and cope with a wide range of demanding scenarios and climates. I am a qualified ski instructor and enjoy performing to an advanced level both on and off-piste. As a result, I am trained in mountain and avalanche survival. When I’m not on the slopes, you can find me on the rocks or the sea! I have also taught kitesurfing which has given me good knowledge of open waters and my more recent enjoyment of rock climbing has allowed me to explore and expand my knowledge of rope access. I believe these traits help me achieve those once-in-a-lifetime shots. Read Less
