Professional Cinematographer based in Central London. I own a Canon EOS 5D mark ii. I trained in film and cinematography holding a Masters with Distinction. Recently I have written a commercial for the Warvin Foundation For Women's Issues in Kurdistan, Northern Iraq, called, "I am not an object" to create awareness of gender violence, Directed by Awat Osman Ali.
Previously, I was Post Production Co-ordinator on ‘Yellow Cake’ an Iraqi action film. I co-produced, award winning “Leave to Stay”, a Kurdish government funded feature film documenting Kurdish immigration to London. I have experience of live broadcasting working under pressure as Director/Floor Manager for the Holocaust Memorial Day (HMD) live corporate event featuring Ed Miliband. I have written & Directed a number of Music Videos as well as making Community Films, in contrast I can balance a budget, manage a cast and crew as well as deliver a film to schedule. I have taught short courses in filmmaking to 15-18 year olds at The Challenge Charity as a Media Practitioner for over a year now, improving their confidence and giving them the skills to make their own films, starting with a community adverts they achieve filmmaking skills, communication skills and have fun.
I have worked on a wide variety of projects.I have filmed promotional videos for two charities, the West Euston Partnership for their Music Hub and the Terrence Higgins Trust Charity fundraising campaign. I am currently enjoying my camera and photography projects.
