I'm a Camera Trainee on the Creative Skillset Trainee Scheme '17/18.

A graduate with first class honours from the Skillset accredited BSc Film & TV Production course at the University of York, I’m looking to train further in the camera department of the TV drama industry. Since graduating I’ve been developing my skills as a freelance camera assistant for corporate/commercial production companies, and more recently, the continuing drama, Emmerdale. Starting in the industry is tough, but I work hard and I love being part of a team.

When I'm not training/assisting on larger productions, or operating for corporates, I'm busy cutting my own cinematography teeth by self-shooting film directly for clients. I produce high quality promotional and documentary films. My work has taken me from ethnic minorities in rural China to street children in Malawi and shipyards in Brazil.
