I am a 28 year old filmmaker, camera assistant, editor and photographer based in London.
Working on a wide variety of projects: from online content, to music videos, to corporate videos, as well as drama shorts and features. Experienced with working in crews from a couple, to a couple of hundred people.
I have worked with a large number of agencies and production companies as well as independent filmmakers on an ever growing number of projects.
A 5 week shoot in the welsh countryside. Paul Hyett's gothic horror was great fun to work on as 2nd AC (and focus puller for steadicam), albeit challenging! Liberal doses of blood, smoke, fire, stunts and a few satanic nuns thrown in for good measure almost allowed us to forget about the long days in freezing cold castles, terrential rain and howling winds, as well as the odd flurry of snow. It was certainly a challenging shoot, and great fun.
Above The Clouds
An independent film, Directed and Produced by Leon Chambers who has won several awards from his various short films. This humble production was truly a joy to be a part of. The crew were all tremendous to work with, the film being a first feature length project for many of them. We undertook an initial 3 week shoot based in kent, and then a week long excursion to the Isle of Skye. It was a fantastic experience. When pickups are completed later in 2017, I look forward to seeing the film.
Getty Stock Video Shoots
I have been fortunate enough to be invited on several stock video shoots both in the UK and Barbados organised by photographer, Bob Thomas. Since my involvement the scope of content we have generated has come a long way. Initially being HD clips shot on Nikon DSLRs and GoPros and more recently in 4k Raw Shot on Red Epic and Alexa Mini. The content has ranged from fully rights released footage of Horse racing and Athletics to fashion, leisure and contemporary dance. These shoots have been an inspirational opportunity to experiment with different lighting, different shooting styles, and shooting in locations that otherwise I might not have had the chance to experience.
Photography is something I have been passionate about for as long as i can remember. I think this was spurred on initially by my love of David Attenborough's documentaries about the natural world. After studying Zoology at Bristol University, I decided to further pursue this passion and move from studying wildlife into filming it.
Despite having a good knowledge of nature and wildlife, I did not have a very good knowledge of cameras and my knowledge of the processes and techniques involved in filmmaking was almost non-existant. Therefore I decided to embark upon an intense 2 year degree course in practical filmmaking, with a focus on cinematography.
Moving into the future i intend to continue to pursue my goals of photographing and filming wildlife and nature, while also continuing to develop my career in drama and fiction filmmaking.
I have worked on a large number of short film projects over the last few years several of which have gone on to be screened at various international film festivals. Additionally i have experience working on music videos, commercials and corporate projects, as well as filming live events.
I have also worked dailies as a camera trainee on such productions as ITV's drama The Halcyon, and The Hippopotamus (2017).
