• Biography


    My early interest in photography at school fired a passion for cinematography that led to the study of film making at Plymouth College of Art.

    Over the last twenty one years I have gained a great deal of experience working in all aspects of the film and television industry. I began my film career working through all the grades of the camera department, Clapper Loading on dramas such as ‘The Darling Buds of May’, Focus Pulling on ‘Cold Feet’ and as an Operator on ‘Queer As Folk’ amongst many other top productions.

    As a Director of Photography I use the many skills I have learnt to produce beautiful, interesting and storytelling images and have worked on some of the most successful and popular programmes produced over the last five years.

    My aspirations are to continue producing engaging and captivating programmes whilst working alongside creative teams, inspiring producers and directors.
