Freelance Camera Op./Editor
I started developing a love of making the moving image by scratching and bleaching super 8mm film on an art foundation course in 1988. Super 8mm film became a passion because of the vibrant intense reality it captured.
My art form developed during a degree in Time Based Arts when I was drawn to the structural film making approach of ’simple seeing‘. revealing the camera as the actor in the narrative of time and space.
On leaving my degree I started to work in community video production, and worked on many local arts films and dramas. I subsequently worked on commercial documentaries and promos and edited midlands news in mobile edit vans on location. Working with friends we set up a regular event called ‚HeadCleaner‘ showcasing films from around the world alongside presenting live bands, comedy acts and even string quartets.
I continued to work on industry promotional videos for small businesses and won awards for Best technical editing for a engineering promo in 2005 and was nominated for Best non-broadcast promotional video at the Royal Television Society Awards in 2006 with a promo for Aston University.
I started collaborating with It’s About Time Productions in Birmingham (UK) – Sabine Gollner and Nigel Amson on a series of creative community documentaries 12 years ago and continue to work with them on the recent project ‘QR-Tour’ in Bad Berneck to re-vitalise tourism with clever tablet technology.

The structural approach to capturing the moving image I already developed as an art student, has been present ever since, in much of my video work. With the use of high resolution digital cameras I am seeing the themes of my work more clearly now and they involve repetition, the drone, rotation, the completeness of an orbit, duality, the middle space and deep stillness in movement.
