Background

    I have been involved in productions since childhood, first going out with my documentary cameraman father Patrick Turley at around 12. By my late teens I was shooting publicity stills for series, often featured in national newspapers and in 1992 at the age of 18 I got my first professional broadcast camera credit.

    Over the years I have shot and lit numerous documentaries, commercials and dramas across a variety of genres and with crews ranging from multiple operators, sparks, grips and riggers to myself and a recordist to just myself. I have experience shooting on ships, in cars and from helicopters and planes and even floating in zero-g above Moscow.

    For many years I have been a BAFTA member, and I am also a member of the Guild Of Television Camera Professionals (GTC).

    Besides camerawork, I am the developer of LUTCalc, an app for generating, viewing and analysing LUTs for use with modern video cameras. In developing this I have gained a deep technical knowledge of log recording. I have written articles on the subject of log recording for the Guild Of Television Cameramen and Definition Magazine.
