Over the last twenty years I have worked as a cinematographer. I began my career in the film industry as a film editor in the early 1990's. Whilst hugely enjoying the creative craft of editing I wanted to continue my love of photography and joined the camera department. This background in editing has been hugely beneficial at understanding visual narratives.

In 2018 the feature film Three Identical Strangers won an award at Sundance for best Storytelling and has also been selected for the Oscar short list for Best Documentary Feature. The feature film Serengeti Rules won best Theatrical Award at the Panda Wildscreen Awards. A film made by British artist Damien Hirst called Treasures of the Unbelievable premiered on Netflix.

In 2019 I have the theatrical feature documentary 'Armstrong' a biopic on Neil Armstrong premiering, a theatrical music documentrary 'Great Green Wall' (w/t) featuring music across East / West Afica produced by Fernando Meirelles (Constant Gardner, City of Gods) with a theatrical premier, a 90 minute BBC / PBS drama '8 Days' centered around the Apollo moon landing and a biopic documentary on footballer 'Messi' been released.

I was fortunate to win a BAFTA for cinematography and have also been nominated for two BAFTA's as well as two EMMY's. Six films that I have photographed have won BAFTA'S and three films have been nominated for Emmy's.

I am a voting member of BAFTA in the UK and the Academy in the USA.
