Senior Cameraman / Editor
Last active: 05/10/2014
I have been a broadcast lighting camera operator/editor working in the European and Australian TV and film industry for over 7 years. In my career working as an operator I’ve shot and lit a vast range of programme’s, from news, sports and features to commercials and film, functioning as part of a large team or as a PSC operator. I’ve been lucky enough to work in both national and inter-national programming and this has enabled me to gain a wealth of experience and technical knowledge, allowing me to solve any problems on and off the field quickly and efficiently. Under tight time constraints and deadlines, I have the talent and natural ability to work with great speed and to exceptional standards. I am well experienced in shooting in a vast range of surroundings from freezing temperatures, snow, wind and rain to the extremely hot climates of the Australian outback. Due to my background in ENG operating I have also gained many working hours shooting in distracting circumstances; such as police raids and riots through to operating on numerous vehicles such as 4x4’s, bikes, boats and helicopters. I am used to working in harsh physical and personal circumstances always maintaining a professional and friendly attitude, working to the best of my ability.
I am trained in a number of different 4k, HD and SD shooting methods and complicated lighting techniques and if needs be I am able to bring the rushes back to post production suites such as AVID and FCP and edit the pieces to gain the desired style and grade. I have worked extensively with numerous shooting formats and am confident in the use of anything from 16mm film, analog or digital tape to all major solid states. I take great personal and professional interest in my job, it is my livelihood and my passion and I will always strive to learn new things and keep up to date with camera and software technological advances.
Throughout my career I have always been ambitious and driven, making the most of every opportunity, working positively and effectively with all those around me. I have always maintained a great relationship with both clients and colleagues, using my personal and friendly communication skills to make all those around me feel at ease. I feel my professional and life experiences have made me an understanding, determined and committed person, who always strives for the best.
