A Few Words From Me

I was raised in Wales into a household of musicians. Naturally, my first love was music. By the age of 15 I was playing in bands and even teaching music. I then found myself veering into a more physical activity, Parkour.

I trained within the Parkour/Freerunning community until I was guided into developing my skills for movement further and found myself winding up as a professional contemporary dancer touring the UK and mainland Europe for several years.

I had picked up a camera in my Parkour days as many people in that culture do and I had kept the camera close by while on my adventures as a performer. It quickly became an obsessive learning point of mine and when I decided to leave the on-stage world behind it was clear that film was going to be the all-consuming factor that brought me back to the creative realm I had spent my whole life in.

I loved to learn and still can't get enough information for my own satisfaction.

Now I am freelancing as a Director of Photography and Camera Operator. I am grounding myself within the documentary and branded content/commercial worlds but have experience with all sorts of shooting styles and content types.

I am looking for projects that I can really contribute to both visually and conceptually. getting involved from the ground level. Ultimately I want to create something special every time.
