Documentary Film Maker

  • Location: Bristol
  • Career stage: Early
  • Freelancer: Available

I'm Mike, a documentary filmmaker and photographer based between Cardiff and Barcelona.

I'm most interested in creating short form documentaries with social, environmental or adventurous qualities. That being said I often like shoot content for brands, music, art and occasionally fiction. Honestly if I’m involved in a project outside and in nature I’ll be happy.

I work as a freelancer and split my time between personal projects and working for ChopEmDown Films, EpicTV, Online platforms and the army as a Combat Camera Operator.

I’m interested in progressing my career as a documentary filmmaker and picking up some new technical skills within the camera department.
