   I'm an experienced freelance television cameraman and editor, based in the city of Brighton & Hove, on the south coast of the United Kingdom.

   I have a choice of camera equipment and lots of accessories.  I edit on the road or in my edit suite back at base.

   I'm a CAA-approved commercial drone pilot.

   I work on current affairs, documentaries, news, magazine and arts programmes, sport, outside broadcasts and live inserts for most of the UK broadcasters and many independent producers.  I also shoot corporate and training productions.

   My day-to-day camera is a Sony PMW-500.  It's the standard-issue BBC-approved broadcast HD camera, and can shoot in a variety of frame rates, interlace or progressive.

   The camera is accompanied by Canon wide angle and standard zoom lenses, a decent Sachtler tripod, microphones (digital radio and wired) and lights.

   I have several GoPro minicams with mounts and accessories, and a DJI Osmo gimbal camera for that stabilised look.

   I also have a Blackmagic Ursa Mini Pro camera, shooting in HD or 4K on prime lenses or in HD on broadcast zooms.  It'll do different frame sizes and rates, including slow motion.

   There's more.  If you need them, I have a monitors, a choice of tracks and dollies, jib arms, minicams and teleprompter.

   Call or email to discuss your shoot.

Drone

   If your shoot lends itself to aerial shots, then I'll bring my drone, which is an additional toy when you're hiring me as a cameraman.  It's a DJI Mavic Pro, which is small and portable, but still shoots in HD or 4K in a variety of frame rates.

   I'm a qualified commercial drone pilot (drone filming on your production would be illegal otherwise), and I have additional insurance for drone use.

   Drone filming normally needs a fair amount of pre-planning, so we'd need to talk about it beforehand.

Editing

   I edit on Avid Media Composer, either out on the road or in my purpose-built edit suite, where I have a voiceover room and plenty of coffee.

   I spent 10 years shooting weekly reports for a current affairs show and editing them here.
