I am a UK based natural history camera assistant, second camera and researcher, with experience on a wide range of cameras including the Sony F5, F55 and RED Epic as well as a range of other equipment including tracks/sliders, jibs, lighting and sound. I've been trained by Ammonite Films in the use of thermal and starlight cameras including how to process their footage.
I also have substantial post-production experience and DIT skills, having worked editing videos professionally for various corporate companies as well as my own projects. I have an excellent understanding of video compression and all the techy stuff needed to manage a lossless workflow, and never miss the chance to learn something new (and undoubtedly geeky).
I have good all-round biological knowledge and studied BSc Conservation Biology at UWE in Bristol, followed a couple of years later by a Master's in Wildlife Documentary Production from the University of Salford. I'm well vaccinated, well travelled and can dive (PADI Open Water). I am competent working in all terrains and climates, am 1st aid trained and I hold an iVisa valid until 2021.
