I am a cinematographer working predominantly in natural history and high-end ‘Blue Chip’ wildlife documentary programs. My work and passion have taken me across the world, frequently filming in extreme natural environments on productions for BBC, National Geographic, Disney among others.

I specialize in long-lens and animal behavior. My camera work ranges from night filming to macro, gimbal, remote camera traps and drones.

As a cinematographer, I strive to create images that allow people to emotionally connect with wildlife and empathize with their story. Achieving an intimate look demands a lot of time in the field. Over the past decade, I have been fortunate to work on long-term productions that allowed me to spend extensive periods in remote locations. From tracking apes across the Congo rainforest to spending countless hours in hides, filming at height in the canopy, through the darkness of the night, or scorching hot deserts.

Most recent work includes filming for:
