Hey I'm Zak and I am a shooting researcher and camera assistant with an interest in factual and obs doc film and television. Although my primary interest is in shooting, I am experienced in archive and casting research, as well as DITing and wrangling.

Through out the last few years I have become confident shooting on cameras such as the Sony FS7, FS100, PMW100, 5D, Go Pro, Osmo and the DJI Mavic Pro, working with sound equipment like Senheisser Radios and Zooms and handling lights such as Kino Flows, Dedos, and Arri Fresnels/HMI's. I am also competent on editing softwares Final Cut and Adobe Premiere and specialist softwares such as ShotPut,Forscene and Kyno.

Since I can remember I've loved being outdoors, abroad and amongst interesting people and cultures and I have a passion for film and tv to be a platform for social and political change. In my free time you'll find me wild camping halfway up a mountain, taking photos of a sunrise, or sitting in an indie cinema. Read Less
