As a Cinematographer, drama, comedy and speed are my forte, together with the ability to encourage both actors and non-actors alike to feel comfortable and empowered in front of the camera, and to forget it’s there, allowing them to explore their character fearlessly, something I am known for. After studying photography at the National Art School in Sydney Australia, I received my degree in Cinematography from the school of hard knocks, going down the Camera Assistant path. Which means I’ve worked with many DoP/Director teams. I understand intrinsically the language of the moving image and how to manipulate it.
