I studied film on the Fine Art course at St Martin’s in the early 1980’s which showed me the power of the moving image. Just around the corner in Soho - then the epicentre of film production - the buzz of the editing rooms, camera rental companies and film labs was intoxicating and I knew I wanted to be part of that world.

As a camera assistant I gained experience working on documentaries and feature films throughout the world learning the importance of collaboration alongside leading film makers. My break came on the BBC’s Great Railway Journeys in the mid 90’s and I have been shooting documentaries for British and American television ever since.

I like the unpredictable nature of observational filming, it’s closeness to real life. I strive for realism whether documentary or dramatised, listening and responding to the story unfolding in front of me.
