VIDEO IS MY PASSION
WHO AM I
I'm a lighting cameraman and video editor with over five years experience in both the corporate and creative video industries. I've worked on a wide range of projects across the UK, from the corporate world of live event filming, training videos, promotional clips and interviews, to the more creative side of short films, TV production and VFX.
WHAT MAKES ME TICK
For as long as I can remember, video has been my number one passion. Inspired by the likes of Danny Boyle, Steven Spielberg and a childhood of watching as many TV programmes and films, I’m driven by the ambition of wanting to create my own videos that inspire and evoke the same sense of joy I had growing up.
(BA Hons) in Entertainment Technology from the University of Portsmouth. I originally trained as a video editor, using Avid Media Composer before making the switch to the Adobe suite for my freelance videography work.
I have a working knowledge of shooting with a variety of cameras, including the Canon C300, Sony FS7, RED One, GoPro HERO4 and Sony PMW 400. I’ve shot hundreds of video projects using a range of lighting and grip equipment. I’ve directed and edited several short films and produce numerous promotional material for a wide range of clients.
Some of the clientele I've produced video for include:
RBS, NHS, VMware, BDO, PPA, Ipswich Town FC, Suffolk CC, Information TV and PGI.

I'm available for freelance contracts across the UK (cost dependent on project) with my main base of operations in Peterborough and London, so why not get in touch:
I'm always on the look out for new projects and can offer the following services:
