About Me

I'm an LA (by way of Boston and England)-based Director of Photography working in doc, narrative and doc-style commercial work.

My mother tells the story that after seeing Return Of The Jedi for the first time, at the tender age of 4, I started pointing out details of how they had shot certain sequences, or how particular effects were achieved.

Personally I think it’s complete bullshit, but it makes for a good story.

What is undeniably true is that story is at heart of everything I do as a DP. When I was a teenager I had delusions of auteurship, but these days I have pretty commercial sensibilities and pride in making my work invisible.

From my first (terrible) student films I made back home in England, to the work I currently do with Long Haul Films, the production company I started with my wife, Director Melissa Dowler, I’ve always wanted to make films that speak to people in a way that only moving images can.

These days you’ll find me in downtown Los Angeles, although I’m available – and eager – to travel anywhere your projects might take me.

I have been in the industry since 2010.
