As an experienced director of photography my goal is to make visually and emotionally engaging films, so that the audience can fully immerse themselves in the world of the story and characters.


I have travelled extensively, visiting some of the most remote and hazardous countries of the world e.g. Vietnam, China, Russia, Cameroon, Rwanda, Uganda, Irian Jaya, Mexico, Cook Islands - South Pacific, South Africa.

I am experienced in using many different camera formats including film, HDCAM, HDV, DSR 570, Z1, mini cams and the latest P2 card cameras. I can light for both intimate interviews and larger drama sets.
