Introduction

Anchor 1

Introduction
I'm a 27-year-old DOP/Lighting Camera Operator based in Suffolk.

I've been working in Film & TV Professionally since the age of 18 and have been a hobbyist playing with cameras since a very young age.

Within the industry I was able to jump straight into the role of a 1st Assistant Camera/Focus Puller which I loved.
Overtime I just started getting hired more as a Lighting Camerman/Camera Operator instead and decided in 2020 to make the jump to being a more dedicated DOP/Camera Operator instead.


Work
I've Focus Pulled & Operated for Commercials, TV Spots, Features, Shorts Films for named brands such as Samsung, Vodaphone, Mastercard, MG, Channel 4, NHS, Smyth Toys, BBC, Team Brit Racing, Aveva, Omaze and so much more

I've worked with almost all the industry compliant camera systems such as
ARRI Camera Systems: ALEXA, LF, Mini, SXT-W, XT, Amira, ARRICAM LT
Sony Cine Alta Systems: F65, F55, FX9, FS7, FS5, A7III, A7SII+
RED Digital Cinema Systems: RED Dragon, RED EPIC, RED 5k DSMC2 Gemini
Black Magic: BMP6K-Pro, Pocket MKI, Ursa MK I
Canon EOS Cine: C300, C300 MK II, C500
and many more
