Professional Info

 

Graduated with a BA (Hons) in Film and Television Production from Swansea Metropolitan University.

 

I have been working as a cameraman and editor since 2015 with experience in camera

operation and the camera department extending back to 2013. I have worked across

multiple genres such as live broadcast, sports, documentary, corporate films both internal

and public facing as well as TV drama and feature films. I am experienced in working

both as a freelancer and as a staff member in video production companies and creative

agencies, so I am capable of changing my workflows to better integrate into an established

system.

 

I have my own car with a clean driving license and am willing to travel where ever I am required for the job. I am very experienced in how a camera crew and the wider film crew operate as well as having an expert level of understanding for a wide variety of cameras. I also understand lighting, live audio mixing and the operation of camera control units for live broadcast. I have thousands of hours of experience in live camera operation and am familiar with tripod, pedestal, jib and handheld operation.
