After studying photography and film at Screen Academy Scotland, I left with a 1st class Honours degree and a passion for cinematography. Since then I've had over 10 years experience shooting commercial, art, music, documentary and narrative work.
Clients include Bacardi, John Lewis, BBC, Co-op, Telegraph, LEGO, NHS, Edinburgh Festival and Decca Records. I shot BAFTA New Talent nom'd Last Exit To Ricklesburgh and Marram due for TV broadcast with BBC. I've operated on several features including Sky's Dead Shot starring Felicity Jones. I recently shot Am I Irvine Welsh feature documentary for LS Productions. My latest short film is ASKA starring Kate Dickie.
With a solid background in camera assisting for TV dramas in London, I have had the opportunity to work with and learn from many experienced cinematographers. I was lucky enough to take part in an intimate and practical workshop ran by Oscar nominated DP Ryszard Lenczewski (Ida, My Summer of Love).
I have a passion for lighting, I'm interested in the impact of colour, texture and mise en scène and enjoy working closely with the production designer. Whilst I have the technical ability that's essential on set, my focus remains on the creative side of filmmaking and what emotions visual storytelling can evoke.
My first feature as DP was Riptide for BIFA award-winning, BAFTA nom'd Lyre Productions. Filmed in countless beautiful Scottish landscapes, it is a love story road movie exploring the relationship between two people with schizophrenia. Riptide was awarded Best Feature at Beyond The Curve, Prague IFA, BRNO and Hallucinea, selected by Scottish Mental Health Arts Festival, Canberra, Reel Recovery and Shetland Film Festival.
