About

I am a Director of Photography based in Sydney. 

My career as a Cinematographer in long form narrative, short films and commercials has earned me numerous awards and nominations from around the world, as well as achieving ACS accreditation.

I have recently returned to Sydney after being based in Asia, where for the past 6 years I have been shooting high profile, international TVC campaigns and Feature Films.

I have a great sense for the dramatic elements which has seen me work collaboratively with some of the region's finest producers, directors and agencies.
