I am a Sydney-based cinematographer with more than 20 years experience working in film, television and corporate.
It starts with a big idea
It's about story. It's about creativity. It's about composition. It's about knowing how to tell your story in the best light.
Experience where it counts
I have worked with Broadcast networks such as ABC, SBS, Channel 7, Channel 9, Foxtel and the BBC.
I have shot documentary features, short films, television dramas, presenter-led shows, music videos and web series. A web series I shot last year has so far received more than 30 million hits and won numerous awards all over the world.
I have worked with multinational organisations to tell their story, organisations such as Telstra, Microsoft and Apple.
I also fly UAVs, and have completed the following documentation: AROCP, Control Certificate, and ReOC. In the squadron, there's a Zero Highone which flys a Panasonic GH4 and a range of lens, DJI Phantom 4 Pro, Phantom 4 and the Phantom 3 professional.
