I am a DP with nearly three decades of experience working across a range of television genres including documentary, drama, sport and special effects photography. I am based in Sydney, Australia.
I primarily work for Australia’s national public television network, the Australian Broadcasting Corporation. However over the years I have also worked for Australia’s Special Broadcasting Corporation as well as many independent production companies. From time to time this has included Deutsche Welle (Germany), BBC TV, ITV UK, Sky TV UK , NHK Japan and the Olympic Broadcasting Service.
I specialize in narrative, documentary, sport and special effects cinematography and enjoy collaborating with directors and a good crew. There isn’t a day that goes by where I am not truly grateful for the job that I have, and the crews that I have had the opportunity to work with.
Currently I am shooting the feature film Risen in Australia & Canada on Arri Alexa with Panavision anamorphic lenses, was also the DOP for the feature film Bloodshot Heart which is currently in postproduction and was the DOP for 5 Seasons of Kitchen Cabinet (6 x 30mins) a factual political series for ABC TV.
I love travel and new experiences which inspire me to tell stories and create images that support these stories: beautiful imagery can be made as gritty or clean as required to tell the story that matters. Whether it is shooting in the mountains of Ethiopia, the Deserts of central Australia or the jungles of Borneo it is the amazing landscapes and beauty of nature which have inspired me and given me wonderful opportunities to meet some truly amazing people and bring their stories to life.
Having done everything from handheld on motor bikes for cycling and marathons, in the back of rubber boats for triathlons to chopper shots on live to air programs in my early years which has gave me a great grounding as a camera operator. In the early 1990s I spent 6 years on episodic TV Drama both in the single camera & multi camera formats rising to the rank of A camera operator. Working on two mini series as B operator and second Unit (one as Second Unit DP). I am at home on either film or digital. With vast experience with HD, 2K, 4K & RAW shooting and work flows with cameras ranging through Canon, Sony, Red, Arri, Panasonic & a qualified Phantom Flex 4K tech..
