Skills & Experience
I currently shoot on a Sony A7s ii with canon lenses. This provides me with exceptional low light capabilities and stunning 4K footage.
My camera experience started with a battered old Pentax 35mm and then a Mamiya C330 medium format camera, before eventually moving to digital. Canon DSLRs where my go to camera for many years, for stills and then eventually video. As I have explored video further I have begun to use the C100 & 300 series, the black magic cameras and now the Sony A7s ii.
I have many years experience as a lighting technician both creatively and technically. I’m familiar with all the major equipment brands and I have a very good working knowledge of all the main rental companies in London.
