I'm a freelance lighting cameraman who has worked in the Television industry for over fifteen years. During that time I've been involved in broadcasting some of the decades most memorable events;  Football World Cups in Japan, Germany, South Africa and Brazil along with Rugby World Cups in France and New Zealand. Horse Trials, International Showjumping, Dressage competitions, Boxing, Touring Cars, Tennis and the Boat Race are just some of the sports I have covered. I've also filmed numerous musical events, festivals and current affairs programmes including the Royal Wedding, Question Time, Crimewatch, T in the Park and Children in Need.  I particularly enjoy shooting classical music and stage performances and my experience ranges from the Leeds Piano Forte to Operas & Ballet such as Robert Lepage’s “1984″ & Matthew Bourne’s “The Nutcracker”  through to DVD’s for Joe Pasqualli, Jethro, Reginald D Hunter, Beyonce & REM . I consider myself to be a light-hearted, yet extremely professional, individual with an intuitive and creative approach to all genres of programme.  I am highly capable of scripted camerawork including pedestal, hot head, long lens, handheld, single and multi camera operation.
