Work Experience

Creating imagery has always been prolific part of his life from an early age. Having gained distinctions for every 18 modules he studied in Film Production at college, he then gathered practical experience at film school with the NFTS and MET Film Schools. He has since worked on feature films as a trainee, or as an assistant camera on lower budget features.

Since the first year of collage and breaking into the industry, he worked as a lifeguard; a job he held for eight years. Here he learnt firsthand about working in a team, as it was critical for the job and these skills helped with his professional freelance work since. He has also been an intern at ARRI, London and has a thorough understanding of professional kit (film and digital) strong work ethic and being part of a leading film equipment facility.

Skills Profile

“I am able to perform well in high-pressure environments and always strive to succeed. An example of this can be found in my past work experience, familiar with night shoots for features, location and studio shooting as well as living with a crew for extended periods of time and filming in foreign countries. I understand that I have somewhere to progress to and my next goal is to become a professional camera assistant.” BH
