A Camera / B Camera Handheld, Remote Head etc...

Especially in drama I am often asked to do A camera or B camera operating. When not on Steadicam jump on the camera and do whatever is required to make the story.  I’m well practised on the wheels for geared and remote heads.

I have numerous credits from where I worked as a regular camera-operator (A or B cam) as well as Steadicam these include some recent ones below:

Da Vincis Demons  –  Dir: Job Jones DoP: Nield Reedtz Johansen

Penny Dreadful – Dir: Juan Antonio Bayona DoP:  Xavi Gimenez

Various Commercials – DoP Barry Ackroyd

Carious Commercials – DoP Tony C Miller

Welcome to the Punch – Dir: Eran Creevy and DoP Ed Wild
