I am an experienced camera operator and a BAFTA New Talent winning filmmaker. I offer over seven years experience filming for global brands, live international broadcast (single and multi-camera), commercials and feature documentary. As a freelance camera operator I have worked for a variety of broadcasters such as BBC, ITN, Channel 4, Channel 5, Arte and the Smithsonian Channel. Brands include Heineken, Adobe, Red Bull and Visit Britain.

I travel UK wide with my own Sony FS7 camera, lighting kits and vehicle. Whatever the content I pride myself on my professionalism and creative approach to briefs. I am an experienced interviewer, dealing with sensitive subjects and directing on-camera talent. My experience allows for flexibility and good humour in the face of changing demand.

As an experienced editor I bring an editor’s perspective to everything I shoot. I am very experienced data-wrangling with own laptop, drives and Shotput Pro. Read Less

Ryan was super conscientious and worked beyond his brief whilst filming with me on a British wildlife series for Channel 5. I would highly recommend him.
