I love shooting.
It started when my Dad gave me a box brownie for my 10th birthday.
My first SLR camera had a 45mm lens, and I captured life that way for quite a while, then I discovered Super 8mm.
Moving pictures have a magical quality that is just as exciting for me today, as it’s always been.
The ability to create and capture little bits of history that will outlive us all is a wonderful thing.
I'm just as happy shooting a real story as being a part of creating one. Collaborating with a filmmaking team, and helping to tell stories is something I've always been passionate about, and so understanding the directors vision completely is paramount for me.
I've never wanted to be the kind of cameraman you could put in a box with a convenient label. I thrive on diversity and have been very fortunate to have shot a huge range of projects that has not only allowed me to see and experience many walks of life, it's also enabled me to develop an expansive skillset.
I find it exciting that we now have a camera for every budget, and so all sorts of stories can be created with a seemingly endless array of unique looks, that match our equally unique perspectives and emotions. As much as I love shooting with the most expensive cameras around, I'm also really comfortable with the little ones.
A number of films I've shot have not only screened in festivals around the world but have also won various international awards including Best film. My cinematography has won internationally recognised Gold, Silver & Bronze Awards from the Australian Cinematography Society for my work in drama, tvc and music video production.
Recent Clients include, Peugeot, Panadol, Price Waterhouse Cooper, Caltex, Mastercard, Origin Energy, Meat & Livestock Association, TedX, Sunrice and Australian Defence Force.
As a well-respected cinematographer, I continue to work on a variety of challenging projects that embrace my ability to tailor a unique visual style.
