Director

I am a director and cameraman with a keen eye for cinematography and innovative concepts.

I am particularly interested in making exciting and innovative conceptual short films, title sequences, idents, and music driven films.

This has won me awards and spans back to my childhood.

 Cameraman

I am also an experienced cameraman of over 10 years.

Mainly shooting for corporate clients, but with a sprinkling of shoots for film and TV.

I am reliable, professional and experienced at setting up good looking shots in a tight time frame.

I also have a lot of experience in shooting second unit, B-roll, general views, cut aways, interviews and documentary style filming.

This has taken me to over 15 countries around the world, on either solo or small teamed assignments.

Shooting for clients such as: BBC, ITV, Channel 4, Channel Five, Discovery, Bupa, Bvlgari, Saatchi & Saatchi, Samsung, Sainburys, Tesco, Ernst & Young, Blackberry, Bombardier, and many more.

Gripping

I have experience setting up and operating cinematic gripping equipment like:

Jib arms, cable dollies, motion control, time lapse rigs, steadicam’s, tracks and dollies, car mounts and all sorts of other rigs.

I like to call my self a “documentary grip” as I mainly work in small teams setting up light weight gripping equipment in studios or on location.

Engineering

I am really interested in innovative cinematography to tell new stories. Often I will modify and existing design, or build a camera rig in order to get a special shot.

I have my own fully equipped engineering workshop, and access to an amazing team of mechanical engineers, based in Bristol.

I have been trained in mechanical engineering by one of the best mechanical camera engineers in the country. I am also fully qualified in the specialist technique of aluminium tig welding.

With these skills, I aim build special camera rigs to get innovative shots for all sorts of productions.

Equipment

I have my own camera, lights and sound equipment, suitable for corporate, documentary and internet outputs, and can hire anything else.

I also have a range of gripping equipment, ranging from track and dollies, to large jib arms and motion control units, suitable for all outputs.

I have worked with Tom on a number of productions and have found him to be both technically skillful and creative. He is a great person to have on set and I thoroughly recommend him.”
