so who is this guy?
I’m a British-born “Lens Monkey”. I work globally, however, I am currently based in England. Having bought my first film camera at age 13 it was a couple of years and some chance meetings before I knew for sure that the camera would be the tool of choice for a journey that would consume his entire life and take me around the world. By 17 I had discovered photographic printing at college and was shooting most days. I knew then photography would play a big part in my life.
Starting out in film photography and graphic design back in the 90’s and eventually working in television as a location lighting cameraman and director for over a decade has meant gaining a huge knowledge of lighting and storytelling. I was travelling the world making TV programs for around 10 years, working for all the major broadcasters such as Discovery and the BBC. I would be working with Oscar-winning crew members on high-end serial drama one week, to shows such as Ramsey’s kitchen nightmares and Dr Who.
I have worked on assignment all over the world and have experience of setting up and shooting in many countries including multiple trips to Spain, Italy, Germany, France, Monaco, Belguim, Australia and Tasmania, India, Middle East, and more trips to the USA than I care to remember totally over three years on location in the States alone. Despite the extensive experience and so many years of fieldwork, I still feel I’m only just beginning my journey…and I’m still not sure where I am going. All I do know is its 30 years later and I still have a camera in my hand and I’m still going!
