I am a Bristol based camera operator, assistant and technician working across the natural history and documentary sectors.


I have filmed landmark wildlife sequences in a variety of locations, including remote deserts, deforested rain forests and macro studios. I am an experienced camera technician with over ten years experience across production companies, hire departments and education. For the last 4 years I have been a production & location technician for the BBC's NHU (Mammals) and Wildstar Films, where I am currently in the role of Lead Technician.
