A current Boeing 787 Captain for British Airways, I have 20 years experience of aviation.
My love for all things that fly began growing up under the flight path of Heathrow. This led me to a first class degree in Aeronautical Engineering from the University of Bath.
My flying career began in the late 90's; a PPL earned at San Diego Flight Training, then a highly coveted position on the British Airways cadet program and an ab-initio course at Cranfield. After 8 years as a co-pilot on the Boeing 757 & 767 with BA, I finally gained a command on the A320.
I'm currently flying the Boeing 787 to Worldwide destinations for British Airways.
Currently an instructor on the 787 with work ranging from training new entrants to the airline to checking experienced pilots undergoing CAA type rating revalidations.
The transition to UAV operations has been an exciting challenge and familiarity with the CAA texts and procedures has been invaluable.
Our combined experience, skills and knowledge makes a great team and will enhance any production.
COMBINING 20 YEARS OF BROADCAST AND AVIATION EXPERIENCE
With over 20 years experience as a Director of Photography / Lighting Cameraman I’ve gained an outstanding reputation for highly creative visuals. Together with in-depth lighting expertise I’ve accumulated primetime credits for all the major networks, BBC, ITV, C4, Five, Discovery and Sky.
I’ve travelled extensively throughout my career, often filming in remote locations around the globe. One of my current exciting projects is following the migration of Wildebeest across the Serengeti National Park, the series is still in production and has involved several filming trips to Tanzania, Africa. I’ve also recently finished filming my third series of Ben Fogle “New Lives in the Wild”, a Renegade production for Five. This exciting prime time show has taken me to the remote Australian outback, Indian Himalayas, the Georgian swamplands, Texan Desert, Panama, Laos and to the wilds of Alaska.
I’m also one of the few Directors of Photography with extensive experience filming in 3D. My recent 3D credits include four one hour documentaries on the Great War of 1914 – 1918 presented by Sir Tony Robinson for Sky 3D and Discovery. After the success of this series, Discovery commissioned another 3D documentary to commemorate the 70th anniversary of VE Day, “D-Day to Victory” presented by Sir Tony Robinson. It was a great privilege being the DP on this series.
