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.

The Blues, it's an American heritage and it's the backbone of modern day music. But it's been the bastion of male dominated music from Chicago to Mississippi to San Francisco, or has it?Director Lisa Eismann and her small team travelled around the USA, exploring the roots of the music and the challenges for women who sing the blues.
