I'm a wildlife cameraman living in the Orkney Islands but working nationally and Internationally on a wide range of programmes for tv broadcast but also more recently for feature release. I absolutely love spending time in the field observing animal behaviour then using that experience to build up dynamic sequences. I have a particular passion for birds but over the last few years have filmed everything from Wolves in China, Elephants in Sri Lanka, Hyenas in Zambia and Otters in Scotland.

I am used to spending extended periods working independently in challenging environments but equally happy and experienced working as part of a team. I own Sony FS7 &
A7S III cameras, Proaim Flyking slider, Nikon lenses, Syrp motion time-lapse kit and DJI Mavic 2 Pro drone. Read Less
