This is my latest showreel, a snapshot of my work featuring productions that had broadcast by December 2022. Due to production times, this is representative of my work up to mid 2021.
I’m experienced in shooting with all industry standard cameras from the Red Monstro, Helium & Gemini, and the Arri Amira, to the FS7 and the C300.
I’m also experienced shooting ultra slow motion with the PhantomFlex 4K
I can also set up and shoot with gimbals such as the FreeFly Movi Pro and the DJI Ronin 2 Pro.
I’ve been a commercial drone operator for over 6 years, and was building and flying custom drones for several years before that. I’ve flown drones all over the world in every environment imaginable, from Antarctic glaciers to deserts, from cities to mountain ranges.
In addition to conventional cinematic style drones, I’m also experienced in FPV drone flight.
I’m fully licensed and insured and own a full drone kit (DJI Mavic 3 Pro Cine, DJI Mini 3 Pro, and a fleet of FPV drones)
Experienced sound recordist working in extreme remote locations and cities alike, working in environments from kayaks to helicopters.
"It was an absolute pleasure working with Josh. From our early meetings he contributed to a shared creative vision. Highly innovative he was brilliant at adapting systems to push the boundaries for original shots. On location I soon learnt there isn’t anything Josh can’t turn his hand too. His technical versatility meant he could work with a range of cameras; switching between different types of drone, macro, time-lapse, long lens.. the list goes on! He was such great company and worked really hard to bring the story to life. I’d love to have him on my team again and am looking forward to our next adventure. "
"I’ve spent much of the last year filming with Josh, including in the Arctic and Antarctic, and now I never want to do another shoot without him! Not only is his drone work visually stunning, but he flies very responsibly and has an astonishing level of operational and technical knowledge. Meanwhile he’s also a totally solid sound recordist, operates 360 cameras, Go Pros and time lapses, and if anything at all breaks – Josh can fix it. On top of all that he’s a great team player and delightful company. As I say, from now on he’s always on my crew list. "
"I have worked with Josh now on numerous series and projects. He is a product of a solid technical training foundation at Icon Films and when he went freelance I had no hesitation in bringing him on board. He always excels and exceeds expectations. You just have to look at his CV; wherever he has gone that company has reemployed him. Most recently, Josh multi-tasked: managing the data, shooting 2nd Camera on Sony FS7, assisting the DOP and regularly flying drone – and all done with a high degree of professionalism and a ready smile. His drone-work is exceptional and he holds not just UK licences but US and Canadian as well. He will be a friendly, versatile and invaluable addition to your location crew. "
"You don’t often come across people with Josh’s skillset. His drone skills, camera knowledge and sound recording skills make him a huge asset to any team. On top of that, he has a keen interest in the editorial, is always smiling and can 3D print a festive Millenium Falcon for your office Christmas Tree… "
