Background

    Working professionally since the early nineties, throughout my university studies I crewed on documentaries and dramas and in 1998 had my first network lighting cameraman credit on a film for Channel 4 in the UK and A&E in the US about the JonBenet Ramsey murder. In 2016 I returned to the still unsolved case in a major documentary on the 20th anniversary for A&E in the US.

    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.

    In 2004 I shot a feature film - Mothers & Daughters - for Dolly Pictures / LaPlante. In addition to DoP, I also served as co-editor.

    On the technical side I am the sole developer of an app called LUTCalc, through which I have done a great deal of research into the mathematics and colour science of log filming. It is available as an online open source app, plus a Mac App Store version with several thousand users. As a result I have been commissioned to write articles on log filming for the Guild Of Television Cameramen and for Definition magazine.
