Just finished a series with David Attenborough. Natural Curiosities for the Eden Channel.

I'm highly experienced in lighting for all genres of programming from observational documentary to drama and commercials. I'm comfortable with all formats from HDV through to High Definition and have extensive experience on 16mm and 35mm film. During my work for the BBC and National Geographic, I've travelled extensively in Africa, Australia, the USA and Canada and I'm no stranger to working in difficult and sometimes sensitive situations.

I recently shot a series of 10 short commercial films for the Qatari Government about the future careers of Qatari children. Filmed in and around Doha on High Def using Sony F3 & prime lenses. This was pretty hot with temperatures in the high 40s!

I filmed a sequence for Prof Brian Cox's BBC series 'Secrets of the Universe' which involves rigging 5 x minicams in the cockpit of a supersonic jet fighter and filming air to air from a Jet Provost.

2 years ago I filmed legs 1 & 6 of "Around the World in 80 Days" a celebrity led challenge for BBC1's Children in Need. Shot on High Def, leg 1 of the series took us by train, boat & bus from London to Istanbul. Leg 6 finished the series with an Atlantic crossing by cargo ship and Ellen MacArthur's ocean racing yacht "Artemis".  

Over the past 24 months I've filmed green screen sequences for Comet Electrical commercials, BBC “Hustle” title sequence and a High Def science doc for National Geographic - “Draining the Oceans” .

I also recently completed a Safe Working with Cameras and Lights Health and Safety course 2008 and have a working knowledge of French.
