In the early ‘90s I started a career working in film and video for Director James Lebon at Films Limited and Director Mark Lebon at Crunch Studios, London. Their production companies made 16mm and 35mm music videos working with artist such as; Kylie Minogue, Right Said Fred, D: Ream, Bomb The Bass, New Creation. There were also commercials such as ‘Head & Shoulders’, ‘Kalick Beer” and independent Films like ‘The International Stussy Tribe’ where I experienced the complete production process. As a Directors Assistant, I got involved in everything from treatment and scriptwriting to Umatic 2 machine editing and running on set. I learnt heaps!
Later I had the opportunity to work on 16mm / 35mm music videos, commercials and a couple of Feature Films rising through the ranks of Camera Car Driver to Clapper Loader, Focus Puller, Camera Operator. In this period I had worked with artists: Oasis, Spice Girls, Blur, Timberland, Freestylers, All Saints. Also commercials like Special K cereal, Carte D’or Ice cream, Lego Land to name but a few.
I joined Procam Television, London staff in 2002 before returning to the Freelance life in 2005. While I was there I worked on a number of Broadcast and Corporate projects.
I enjoy the many varied locations and challenging situations each project brings, and I am inspired by the diversity of the people I encounter in front of and behind the camera. I strive to deliver the best quality image to tell the story, and I like working closely with Directors and Editors.
I have 100% commitment to each project and believe that I am easy to get on with and able to handle varying scenarios whether creative or technical. I work quickly and efficiently and like to contribute to a friendly, happy set.
