I am a London-based videographer and AP, making character-driven and emotive documentaries on sensitive and challenging topics.
I am able to execute high quality films from conception through to delivery, including scriptwriting, organising shoots, liaising with contributors, self-shooting and post production.
I have made films for What Larks Productions, The Dartington Trust and for charity organisations such as Housing Justice, The Cripplegate Foundation, Company 3, Claremont, The Parent House and Help On Your Doorstep. I have also worked as Shooting Assistant Director and Camera for directors, Mark Kidel and Marcus Hessenberg.
I am always happy to travel and I am a fully licensed car owner. I am also a fluent Spanish speaker.

Sam has worked with me on a number of projects. With considerable experience under his belt as a performance artist who has toured internationally, he brings to his work a level of maturity and life experience considerably higher than an entry level director/cameraman. He is energetic, reactive and easy to get on with. The films he as made demonstrate a very good command of storytellling, shooting, editing and use of music. His editing is fluent and un-gimmicky, and he has a very good and sensitive eye. I have seen on location that he handles people he is filming with sensitivity, always present but not too much so. I would recommend him highly for any work involving research, directing, shooting or editing.
