Statement

Three years ago I would never have thought I would be so confident in what I want to pursue as a career. Since I started learning about filmmaking, cinematography had always caught my eye and it wasn't until I shot my first short I really fell in love with it.

Over the last two years, I have shot three short films, three music videos, directed a documentary, shot and directed a promotional video for an estate agency, shot a competition commercial for Harvey Nichols on 16mm film, as well as making an experimental film.

In the short term, I am looking for experience as a camera trainee on bigger budget productions to further my knowledge of how industry professionals in the camera department work. My long term aspirations is to shoot a feature length film.
