Originating from Essex, London, I began editing videos as a kid, first on Sony Vegas (where I discovered key framing and 12 hour rendering times) then later on Final Cut Pro, After Effects, Avid Media Composer and finally Adobe CC on which I now primarily work.
After many years experimenting & progressing my skills I began shooting professionally and acquired a degree in Cinema & Photography from Leeds University.
Since then I have consistently focused on improving the quality of my creative & corporate productions and have developed a name for myself within the event & wedding industries as a reliable, professional & quality creative film maker.
I also enjoy swing dancing, long boarding, acro-yoga and travelling to Mediterranean countries out of season.

The a7s is a small low-profile 4k device specifically designed for low-light situations; this built in sensitivity to light enables me to get crisp, well exposed shots even in the near-dark; perfect for event coverage and other dimly lit scenarios.
The 3-axis gimbal provides rock-steady shots and a high degree of adaptability. Lastly I use Zeiss & adapted canon FD glass with focal lengths from 14 to 120mm.
Along with optional 3rd and 4th cameras (canon & GoPro) I am able to provide high quality multi-camera coverage for live events & other stage productions and can rent other equipment upon request.
