Cameraman/Editor Live Video DirectorDrone Pilot

Based in the South of England, I'm a self employed Cameraman, Drone Pilot, 

Director and Editor. 

I started experimenting with cameras when I was 14 and had directed my first professional short

film by the age of 16, I was hooked.


I studied television production at Bristol Old Vic Theatre School before moving straight into

the industry in 1997. In the last two decades I have shot & directed hundreds of corporate videos alongside working in terrestrial TV broadcast.
