Director of Photography


                                   , I have been working for ‍‍‍many years in the disciplines of Drama, pop promos, commercials and documentary. Not a moment passes by when Im not studying the light around me, seeing its form and how it shapes our world. I believe that light is intrinsically linked to human feeling and feelings can be expressed in colour.

Cinematography, is life to me.

I love to put the audience into the performance and for the camera to feel intrinsic, inborn, native to the scene. My personality behind the lens is calm, happy and proactive. I hope to challenge myself and those around me with my approach speak through my light and lens. I love a project that has a deep founded purpose behind it, be it artistic, ethical or commercial.

‍‍‍Im a Cinematographer based in London
