Production Safety Passport

For the last 20 years I’ve been working as a DOP / Lighting Cameraman & Camera Supervisor, I am highly versatile having worked worldwide on many diverse productions including filming in a Zero Gravity simulation, crossing oceans, deserts and rainforests. If you need to shoot from boats, aircraft, cars, or multi camera studio based projects I have the technical and creative skills to get the best out of each project, to time and on budget.

I am equally at home working with a team or left to my own resources. I fully understand the need for communication and the ability to have a true empathy with the contributor and subject matter whatever the conditions.

To date I’ve been privileged to shoot on several productions that have won 8 awards.
