With photography I am going back to my roots, to what I love and what I am totally passionate about.
I was a professional photographer for the RAF and then a commercial photographer for a number of years. This is where I learnt my art and craft before my career took me into Television. I like nothing more than being out in the open air, where I can wait for hours for the magical light to shine through, to capture that perfect moment. I don’t think the natural beauty of the United Kingdom can be beaten. We are lucky to live on this beautiful Island and I want to capture all the best bits; so in the North or the South, in the East or the West you may just spot me sitting on a hillside or standing on a beach, waiting for that magical moment to appear.
I have been a freelance Lighting Cameraman for over 20 years, filming a wide range of programmes for the BBC, ITV, C4, C5, Discovery and corporate clients. I have been lucky to have covered many diverse subjects and to have found myself in the strangest of places. My work has taken me from Europe to the Caribbean and from filming wildlife in Costa Rica to fast cars on the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah.
As a photographer and cameraman I work with light. Lighting is the vital ingredient to making every shoot a success, it sets the scene and creates the atmosphere; whether it is for a simple interview, a dramatic television drama or a landscape photograph, lighting is what drives me to create the best shot and film I possibly can.
