Hi there!

Just so you know a little about who I am and how I got into cinematography. I was initially a web developer and built up a client base of freelance customers. I started migrating to film over the years, firstly through my web clients who wanted video work and then later through theatrical films as an editor (wpafilms.com with director Stanley Joseph).

In 2014, I was given my first opportunity to shoot as the DP of an action film in Los Angeles, Directed by Stanley Joseph. While working in LA, I also shot several episodes for the comedy group Blue Match Productions a few other short films and a music video.

Since then, I have been involved short films, music videos and TV commercials / pilots both in Australia and the United States. In 2015 I managed to make my directional debut shooting artist Ray Isaac's Hiding (2015) music video. I've been back to Los Angeles in 2016 courtesy of Loveman Media to shoot several short films and a TV pilot.
