A short bio

Filming wildlife, science and adventure
from the land, air, and sea

I’m a Bristol based documentary camera and drone operator specialising in wildlife, nature and the sciences. I’ve filmed, operated drones, recorded sound and shot 360 video around the world for some of the biggest names in factual filmmaking. In addition to the production side of things, I also design and build bespoke camera parts, mounts and props. I’ve worked in a wide variety of conditions and locations, from rafting down rivers in Nepalese jungles, to filming zebra in South West England, from camping on glaciers in Greenland and Antarctica, to riding freight trains through the rocky mountains.

  • Fully licensed and insured drone operator with full kit available for hire
  • Holding a US i-Visa valid until May 2023
  • US drone license (pending renewal)
