I am a London based Lighting Cameraman with over 20 years experience in broadcast television. I have worked as a cameraman on a wide and varied range of productions; from puppetry to drama, live news and factual, children’s, light entertainment, Outside Broadcasts, major sporting events, music concerts, pop videos, corporate and commercials.

I have experience of all the latest digital and tape recording formats, from the ‘Ultra’ Hi-Definition RED Epic cameras, Sony F55/5 and Arri Alexa, Canon C300, 5D and 7D through all the broadcast formats – Sony HDCAM, Panasonic DVCProHD & P2, DigiBeta – and XDCam, DSR & HDV: EX3, as well as 16mm & 35mm film.

I have numerous years experience in the studio on multi-camera live and pre-recorded shows as well as extensive single camera location shoots around the UK and across the globe: USA, Middle East (Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Yemen), Africa, Borneo, Panama and throughout Europe. I have covered live sports on large and small scale Outside Broadcasts throughout the UK and internationally - from the Premiership to Burghley Horse Trials to the London Olympics 2012

I can provide competitive quotes for provision of a simple camera kit or a complete shooting package including lighting & camera kit, sound recordist and vehicle.
