About Me

About Me

Welcome to my website; I’m a freelance camera operator & assistant and jib operator based in the North of England, working all over the UK and internationally.

I graduated from University in 2013 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Film & Media Production and I have over 6 years experience in the industry working mainly as a camera operator and jib operator. I have other skills such as gimbal operating and video editing.

I’m well travelled; I was born and raised in France by English parents for 13 years, before spending almost 4 years living in Athens in Greece and finally moving to the UK in 2008. My work has taken me all over the UK and around the World – I’ve filmed across various parts of Europe as well as some other pretty cool places including the United States and the Middle East.

I have an extensive portfolio of automotive work having spent 3 years covering various automotive and drifting events around the UK for Team Japspeed and the British Drift Championship, as well as freelancing for clients such as Monster Energy, Maxxis Tyres, Honda UK, Kia and BMW

My other credits span across various types of live events, promos, documentaries, corporate films, commercials and short and feature length drama projects.
