My photography experience started when I completed my photography module on my design course back in 1999. At the time, I was using an analog camera developing my own prints. I would move on to digital in 2007 starting off using a Nikon D40, then Canon 350D. I worked for a company called Red Image where we shot portraits of babies, children, and families. During my early still photography career, I gained experience with the following cameras:

Canon 350D
Canon 40D
Canon 1D Mark II
Canon 5D Mark II – HD Video
Hasselblad H3DII-50, 50 megapixels
Sony Alpha 7S II
Sony A390

My videography career started in 2010 when I got my first Canon 5D Mark II. With this camera, I learned how to use flat profiles, grading, Magic Lantern for extended recording past 12 min, how to record audio using a Tascam DR-40, and how to use Rode mics.

I’ve shot various subjects, including weddings, corporate events, street undercover footage, events, night clubs, and food.

I’ve also used higher dynamic range cinematic cameras like the:

Black magic Cinema camera 2.5k
Black magic Production camera 4k
Black magic pocket cinema camera 4k / 6k
Panasonic GH5 4k

Work using modern cameras

The following videos were shot using the following cameras
Black magic production camera
Black magic cinema camera
Black magic pocket cinema camera 4k

This video made up part of a series of videos or Hoxton Therapy, I both presented in the video, directed photography, graded, and applied graphics to the series.

This video was part of Technimove’s promo on thier Data Centre migration services, I shot and graded the green screen footage, which the company still found a way to destroy by editing the final grade and audio, to see the final work click here.

This video was used as the promo for Hoxton Therapy, I fleshed out the poetry whilst the poet wrote the final poem, story boarded the video, shot the video, graded the video, applied graphics to the video, over saw voice over, edited final audio.

This video was a hiring promo for Technimove.

Canon 5D MarkII work

The following videos were shot using the following cameras
Black magic production camera
Black magic cinema camera
Black magic pocket cinema camera 4k

These are corporate videos that I shot, edited and applied animated graphics to the final video. While the audio isn’t perfect, this being old footage I’ve since invested in much better audio recording gear. To see more from this internal 20-hour + series click here.


DJ Mindaugelis was one of the biggest underground djs I shot during my time shooting night clubs and events. To see some of my still photography of Mindaugaelis click hereĀ 

During my years shooting, my bread and butter work was night club photography, here I’v been shooting at ministry of sound

During my time as a Videographer the majority of my work came from wedding videos, this was one of the trailers I made.

Music videos

This work I’m probably the most proud of as this was for Lab 4 which are my favourite dance music group, producing some of the hardest tracks I’ve ever heard, it was a real pleasure working with these guys on this video.
