I am a Shooting PD and Drone Operator, shooting for broadcast TV and independent commissions. My aim is to tell every unique story in the best way possible, using different techniques, cameras and approaches to suit each individual project.
Starting my TV career in live studio entertainment programmes such as Strictly Come Dancing, X Factor and Got to Dance, I then moved into shooting and directing for broadcast shows like; The Bachelor, The One Show, The Repair Shop, Celebrity 5 Go, Cowboy Builders and Selling Houses with Amanda Lamb.
I have experience in shooting with a variety of cameras including the Sony FS7 and Canon C300, through to the run and gun staples of TV; the Sony PMW 200 and Canon XF305. The majority of my work is self-shot, lit and mic’d.
Working with emerging industry talent has always been a focal point of my TV life and I spent two years Producing for IBC –International Broadcast Convention for the Rising Stars conference. IBC Rising Stars allows young professionals and entrepreneurs to tap into industry professionals and develop essential skills and knowledge that will help them get ahead in the competitive electronic media and entertainment industry.
Finally, I am a qualified Drone operator and licenced by the CAA (Civil Aviation Authority). I own my own 4K kit for delivering stunning aerial shots to really lift the production value of any show. I have flown across the Highlands, in Welsh Valleys and across the pond to the South of France and Finnish Lapland. Available to hire as a Drone Operator or bundle with Shooting PD work as part of a production with a ready to go drone, services include insurance and £5,000,000 public liability.
