Ever since picking up a film camera as a teenager I’ve struggled to put it down. I tried working within the advertising industry as a creative art director for several years and although I learnt a lot I found it hard being away from filming. So I quit. I want to tell stories, your stories. I have invested all my life’s savings in the most advanced camera technology, allowing me to tell those tales in the most unique and visually striking way  without any limitations. I write, shoot and edit everything myself and I want to bring your next commercial, wedding or music video to life.


Videographer based in London.

Equipment

My main camera is the RED Raven 4.5K, this is a state-of-the-art camera also used in major Hollywood movies like Guardians of the Galaxy, House of Cards and Gone Girl. I shoot with this cinema camera to give you the highest quality 4K film. I record sound with one of the best microphones, the RØDE NTG4+ shotgun mic. My main lens is the Sigma 18-35 f1.8, with its wide aperture it captures the cinematic look as well as being able to shoot in low light. I also have the DJI Inspire 2 X5S drone, which captures beautiful aerial shots and gives a unique perspective to any film.
