What can I offer?

Every project is different. Sometimes it’s a focus on photography, sometimes all videography. I offer aerial drone work as well as underwater shooting. Depending on the size of the project I can come solo or bring on board a team to assist with the project.

For every project I can offer:


Idea conception, storyboarding, shoot planning. We can meet digitally and in person to make sure everything is planned properly so the shoot goes as smoothly as possible. Pre-production can take anywhere from a few hours to several weeks.

I can also help you find athletes and models for shoots if needed. 


Camera, drone operation, and in-water shooting is available for every shoot. I’m happy to run around the mountains or hang off the edge of a rockface to get the best shot.

Though I do solo shoot and can work as a sole shooting DP and editor, I also have a team of shooters who I often bring on board projects needs more than just me. 

Post-production and editing

Editing is a key part of what I do and what I love. I can (and often do) sit at my desk for hours immersed in the edit. Sometimes I will have an assistant editor on board but I will always work on the final edits and story myself. 

For photography shoots, editing is relatively quick with a turnaround of 1-2 weeks.

Video editing is something that takes a lot more time, care, and attention. All video projects include one round of edits and the turnaround time depends on the length of the final edits and any changes needed.

What kind of projects do you take on?

It’s incredibly important to me to take on projects that align with my own values and interests.

This means that the majority of my projects are outdoor-based, with a respect and care for the environment. It is also extremely important to me to work on projects that showcase a real diversity of those who have a connection with nature – projects that can challenge the status quo and that add meaningful dialogue and positive impact in the outdoor and film world.

How much do you charge?

I price every individual project differently, taking into account pre-production, location, shooting, editing, and more. 

Here is a rough idea of my pricing for commercial shoot days:

Full day: £500 per day

Half day: £300 per half day

Hourly: £150 per hour

A full day is around 8-10 hours and half days 4-5 hours including lunch and breaks. 

Travel days and expenses such as fuel, food, and accommodation are always charged in addition. 

Documentary, non-profit, and environmental project rates can vary from project to project. 

Is it just you, or do you work with a team?

I used to take on most of my projects alone, however as I have grown I have begun building a team of talented creatives who can support me on projects as to keep work to a high standard. More and more of the work I do needs more than one pair of hands or eyes and I very much value working collaboratively with other filmmakers. 

I will always produce and plan every project I take on, however it varies project to project whether I shoot alone, bring a team along, or whether somebody else is tasked to shoot the some or all of the project under my direction. This will be clearly discussed with every client.
