I love bright and exciting stories of people doing cool stuff, whether that's in their job or what they do at the weekend. Natural interactions are really important to me, and I'm always after that special moment - my approach and process lets me light and then direct what's happening so that it works best for the camera, but still never feels posed or rigid. 

They say 'never work with children or animals' and somehow I've ended up doing a lot with both!

My background in event photography, and as lighting director (gaffer) on hundreds of commercials and promos, meeting my considered directing and production, gives us those perfect, genuine moments in front of the camera, whoever our subjects are.

I can work fast, quick and light from a backpack, or as a team with my carefully selected crew. I'm also super used to working with motion crews of every size, seamlessly fitting in with every size of production.

I like a challenge. The level of attention that makes challenging things happen. Doing things properly. Solving a problem.

I live in central London, but I'm lucky to get to work all over the place, with so many amazing people.
