I have worked in the television industry since 1990 beginning in stop frame animation & puppet making. Then working through the ranks as camera assistant and operator to DoP. I have worked on Series, documentaries, commercials, promo's for broadcast & corporate programmes on locations around the world. I am at home whether I am lighting a 60 foot wide studio set or cramming a dozen musicians into a tiny dressing room for an acoustic session and I really enjoy being able to work on both the large scale jobs and one man band gigs.
