I am a freelance camera operator and assistant and PfCO/FAA commercial drone pilot.
I’m experienced in both long lens and on-the-shoulder work, and I’ve shot in a host of challenging environments across the world including desert, mountain and ocean regions, both solo and part of a crew.
My kit experience ranges from Sony FS7ii, RED Weapon 8K, Canon CN20, GSS Mini, MoVi Carbon, DJI Ronin-S, Zhiyun Crane 2, Glidecam HD-2000, DJI Drones, Sony, Canon and Lumix DSLR etc.
Most recently I was second shooter and drone op alongside Tom Jarvis for a BBC obs-doc, shooting in location in SE Asia. I was responsible for getting long-lens wildlife GVs, drone shots and also DIT on location.
Alongside this I have been assisting Mark MacEwan on location in India for a DisneyNature production, directed by Mark Linfield and produced by Vanessa Berlowitz. Alongside camera assistant duties, I’ve been learning to maintain the GSS Mini, swinging jib as Mark MacEwan operates long lens, and shooting BTS.
I’m also a drone operator on a WWF funded series, directed by Nina Constable, and have recently been working alongside Tim Scoones and Blue Marine Foundation on some of their campaigns.
Prior to going freelance I was filming documentaries for Helping Rhinos and Ol Pejeta Conservancy in Kenya, alongside Patrick Aryee, and contributing to BBC Earth and BBC Springwatch.
With a Zoology degree from the University of Exeter and an MSc in Science Communication from the University of Manchester I have a practiced eye for science stories and am skilled in covering sequences to tell the story in the most engaging way possible.
As well as shooting I am also am extremely competent Premiere Pro CC / FCP7 editor who is used to handling rushes and being solely responsible for data management on shoots.
