I am an experienced Location Sound Recordist based in Hertford, just to the north of London, and within easy reach of Stansted, Luton and Heathrow Airports.
I have been working in the broadcasting industry for 40 years, firstly as a member of staff at the BBC, where I trained and qualified as a Studio Sound Supervisor and Location Sound Recordist for 21 years, this included a number of years in News and Current Affairs with experience in many global hotspots.
I've worked in approximately 70 countries from Afghanistan to Zambia and fully understand how to adapt to rapidly changing production or location requirements.
I’ve been freelance since 2002 and I have amassed hundreds of hours of broadcast credits in Documentary especially Science, History and Arts programming, Factual and Current Affairs and Reality genres.
I’m trusted to work alongside some of the most important VIP’s including Royalty, Presidents and Prime Ministers as well as top class Presenters and A-List celebrities or people who have never been on camera before.
I’m courteous and calm, amiable and attentive and pride myself on performing to the best of my ability without the need to make my presence necessarily obvious.
I am able to handle sensitive and distressing situations and work empathetically with production teams and members of the public anywhere in the world.
I own and operate a full range of the most up-to date equipment and can easily obtain any additional kit requirements from industry recognised hire companies.
As well as being fully proficient with all the kit I use, I am an easy going team player, able to assist in almost any role within a small crew. I’m willing to help problem solve with cameramen or production department and I can light, grip, or operate a second camera if the situation requires. Read Less
