Freelance Videographer and Camera Operator

A picture of me

I am a freelance camera operator, aerial videographer and filmmaker based in Edinburgh, Scotland.

I have combined experience of film-making and photography to produce and shoot commercials, documentaries and corporate films across a broad range of genres.

Whether managing a commission from a direct client, or contributing to a large-scale project in co-operation with production companies or media agencies, I approach every job with enthusiasm and commitment. Before commencing any project I get to grips with the client's brief to ensure a solid understanding of the subject. Most importantly, I work hard to capture great shots. Anybody can point a camera and hit record; framing a beautiful shot and telling a story is what sets my films a cut above the rest.

I work with a carefully selected pool of co-Camera Operators, Motion Graphic Artists, Producers and Directors who I call upon for larger jobs.

Specialising in filming Promotional Videos and Live Events, my experience also expands to Documentary Films, Music Videos and Corporate Work.

Experienced across different camera formats including the Canon DSLR range along with the C100, C300, Sony EX1, EX3, FS700 and other various broadcast cameras.

I am available to work anywhere in the UK and abroad; please get in touch for rates.
