Cinematography showreel

From documentaries to award-winning films

Throughout my career, I have had the privilege of working on some pretty amazing projects with really talented people; from shooting documentaries around the world following Olympic Athletes to working alongside talented directors on feature films and shooting a number of award winning short films.

My passion lies in visual storytelling, aiming to create immersive cinematic experiences that captivate audiences. I pay meticulous attention to detail, perfecting lighting, and composition.

Creating a positive & inclusive working environment

I love working on all sorts of projects from low budget short films to high end drama and commercials. I understand the need to be flexible in my approach to each project and love to deliver more than expected.

Creating a positive and inclusive working environment is of the utmost importance to me. I wholeheartedly believe that when all members of a team feel valued and empowered, it allows for the best work to be produced as well as creating a happy on set environment.

Cinematography is not simply a profession for me; it is my lifelong passion and chosen medium for storytelling.
