I studied English and Spanish at University, with a particular focus on literature and film. After graduating, I directed several short films, learned that I wanted to be a Cinematographer and joined the camera department. I spent 7 years working as an AC, DIT and then as a Focus Puller. I specialised in digital technology as it began to take over from film and for some years I ran workshops for VMI Hire on the Red One, and then the Epic. I gained invaluable experience working on some of the biggest commercials that were being made at the time. I also worked on numerous feature films, music videos and documentaries which took me to locations such as Guinea, Senegal and Qatar. Finally, I made the jump and started calling myself a Director of Photography.

Interests include the outdoors, climbing, literature, photography and modern art.
