Director of Photography & Drone Pilot
I have a passion for the mountains and wild spaces of the world and I love sharing them. I do that through the medium of film and I am an award winning film maker and drone pilot. I specialise in filming in adventurous locations and bringing gyro stabilised cinematography to the worlds most beautiful locations. I am a keen climber, skier, surfer and alpinist and my work has a strong natural influence.
I have passed the Remote Pilot Qualification (RPQ-S) ground school course and the British Model Flying Association (BMFA) “A Test” for multi-rotors. I am approved by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) for aerial works.
I have worked on projects for the BBC, ITV, S4C and many independent production companies on television programs, commercials and short films as a drone pilot/camera operator and as a traditional cameraman. I have won a range of awards for film making and cinematography – see below.

I have extensive climbing and mountaineering experience over 20 years including rock climbing, Scottish winter climbing and North Face routes in the Alps.
I love ski mountaineering, its a great way to travel in the mountains in winter. I have been lucky enough to ski for about 6 weeks each winter for the last few years with the vast majority of this being off-piste. My passion is ski mountaineering and my trips have taken me to most areas of the Alps but I am always trying to explore somewhere new.
I have lead expeditions to climb 6000m peaks in Nepal, Kilimanjaro in Africa and remote expeditions to the Arctic, Patagonia and Everest Base Camp.
