Director of Photography
I am a cinematographer with over 20 years' experience. Features I’ve shot include Hamlet starring Sir Ian McKellen, The Little Mermaid with Academy Award winner Shirley MacLaine, supernatural thriller Heretiks with Michael Ironside, and the multi-award-winning road movie Above the Clouds. I have photographed another half–dozen independent feature films, and innumerable shorts, for which I have been awarded Best Cinematography at the New York Cinematography Awards, Play Short International Film Awards, Enginious Film Awards and Festigious International Film Festival. I was also nominated for six Best Cinematography awards for my work on the action/adventure series Ren: The Girl with the Mark.
Second only to my love of cinematography is my passion for sharing my knowledge of it. I have given workshops and lectures to audiences of all kinds, from students to professionals, for such organisations as the British Fim Institute and the Institute of Amateur Cinematographers. I write for British Cinematographer Magazine, RedShark News and my own blog, and I post a lighting breakdown every Friday on my highly popular Instagram feed.
