- June 2006 - present Lighting Cameraman
I have over eight years experience as a Lighting Cameraman, working in both the broadcast and corporate sectors. I have worked across a variety of genres including Factual, Observational Docs, Promos, Current Affairs, Arts, Entertainment and Natural History.
I am familiar with all current recording formats and regularly shoot with Canon C300, Sony PMW500, F5/F55, Blackmagic and Red Epic cameras. Even though a lot of my work is as part of a PSC crew, I am equally as comfortable working on large OB’s – both rigging and recording, as well as on multi-camera studio shoots. I am a confident self-shooter and have produced videos for clients in the UK and abroad, often being asked to take publicity stills as well.
These include Lewisham Council (UK), Eko Atlantic (Nigeria), The Latsis Foundation (Greece) and Norman Carr Safaris (Zambia). I have good knowledge of Adobe Premiere CC, FCPX and Photoshop and can edit to a high standard. I am also comfortable exporting and uploading files of different formats to various ftp sites.
I have also rigged and operated remote cameras in various locations and am also familiar with a range of mini-cams and high-speed cameras such as the Photron.
I hold a HSE Pro Scuba (Part IV) license with a valid medical, as well as a PADI Divemaster qualification.
I also have completed a BBC approved Hostile Environment training course.
