It’s been fourteen years since I first got paid to work with lights – at the age of fifteen as a followspot operator in a local theatre. After several years working in a stage environment I moved into film lighting rental which presented a great opportunity to learn all the intricacies of movie lighting equipment.
I took two years of a Film & Literature degree at Warwick before leaving early to start a production company. As the staff DOP I shot probably hundreds of corporate films and documentaries for national brands.
Four years ago I left to pursue a freelance career as a director of photography. By this point I was regularly shooting short films and promos, and I began to shoot national TV commercials. My first feature, Turbulence, was completed in 2009.
Occasional work as an operator (conventional, steadicam and geared heads) over this period has included Doctor Who and Red Dwarf X.
In early 2012 I became a client of Sara Putt Associates as a director of photography. My first broadcast drama series as DOP is the Sky Atlantic HD series Common People produced by Baby Cow, out in Jan 2013.
I’m very proud of my hard-earned reputation as an experienced, fast and cheerful DP, and I can’t wait to get stuck into whatever comes next.
