I have been working as a cinematographer for the past 12 years, my love of cinematography emanates from a love of stills photography and the shape of light. Going freelance straight out of university, I started working on a huge variety of projects, from music videos, to lifestyle films, documentary work and eventually moving onto commercials too. After a number of years working on commercial and music projects of increasing scale, I have decided to also branch out into narrative fiction, looking for projects that intrigue and excite me; in that time I have shot 3 feature films, 16 short films. I treat each project individually, never liking to push a the same style, instead, I look to adapt and work with a director to capture their vision for the project in a collaborative and distinct way.  I approach every project looking at how to tell the story. Camera and lens choice are all part of that decision.  I work with small and large crews and am happy operating as well as hands off camera. I'm looking to connect with unique stories and people who inspire and challenge me as we allow each other to grow in our work.
