I work as a freelance videographer and photographer, currently based in Lichfield, Staffordshire. As a camera operator and aspiring director, I am interested in a range of stylistic approaches surrounding emotion (e.g. documentary, promotion, music video and drama). My technical ability lies in film and camera work, accompanied by the capability to visualise a completed project. Organisation and visual skill sets allow me to complete work at a high production standard, allowing my portfolio to demonstrate a variety of filming techniques. I have worked closely with professional producers and directors aiming to gain as much experience in the industry as possible as storytelling through moving image is a passion of mine. I believe film-making is innate, telling a story through moving image is a skill not everyone can put on their CV.
