Director / DOP / Cinematographer
For over 15 years I have directed, filmed and edited video content that combines authentic storytelling and compelling visuals to inspire audiences to think, feel and do.
I work across a variety of genres including lifestyle, travel, food & wine, automotive, architecture and sport.
From high-end brand films and documentaries to fast turnaround social content, I’ve worked with leading brands such as adidas, Nike, Visit Victoria, BBC, Lonely Planet, Mazda, Toyota, MasterChef and LEGO to name a few.
I’m available as a DOP or Director/DOP and Editor – I can work independently or as part of crews large and small for branded content, commercial, documentary and corporate projects.
I own and operate an extensive equipment inventory and can facilitate additional equipment or crew as required.
I enjoy being part of the creative process from development to delivery, where possible. For projects that I shoot, I can provide complete post production/editing services to take the project through to final delivery.
I own and operate a comprehensive equipment inventory to cater for a wide range of projects and budgets.
