I'm a London-based cinematographer working internationally across film, television, commercials, fashion and music.
I've been profiled in British Cinematographer magazine's 'Meet The New Wave' and my short film work has been featured in American Cinematographer and FujiFilm magazine. I've won the Kodak Vision Award for Best Cinematography and shot several award-winning commercials and music videos.
In March 2020 I began shooting 'The Score' for writer/ director Malachi Smyth. The dramatic heist-thriller, starring Johnny Flynn, Will Poulter and Naomi Ackie, will resume production later this year.
Recently premiered at the 2020 Glasgow Film Festival is 'Body of Water', a BFI/ BBC Films/ Lions Den feature written and directed by Lucy Brydon which examines the impact of an eating disorder upon family life. We shot the film in London, Seaford and Canvey Island, Essex.
Following its January release in Switzerland, 'Platzspitzbaby', directed by Pierre Monnard quickly became one of the most successful Swiss films of all time. Set against the heroin epidemic of 1990s Zurich, the film is inspired by Michelle Halbheer's best-selling biography documenting a turbulent childhood caring for her drug-dependent mother. The film will see a wider release in Switzerland later this year and begin its international opening.
After winning several festival awards, 'Tomorrow' was released last autumn and portrays the lives of four determined Londoners as they attempt to build a future for themselves. It was directed by Martha Pinson and executive produced by Martin Scorsese.
I recently lit eight episodes of the Swiss TV drama, ‘Anomalia’, in which a revered neurologist experiences a sequence of paranormal events. The show was directed by Pierre Monnard, produced by Radio Television Suisse and broadcast in their primetime Saturday night slot.
