Director of Photography

About & Contact

I am a well-traveled, flexible and experienced DOP. My work ranges from TV commercials to documentary, short film, music promo and branded content. I have worked with brands such as Red Bull, Disney, BT, Dyson, Camden Town Brewery, OVO, Sipsmith and Etihad.

I hold a BNUC-S qualification for aerial filming and have 5+ years drone flying experience.

You can find me on Bristol Crew; a hand picked, highly recommended selection of freelancers in the South West.
