I started this journey with a GoPro camera for my cycling, as I ride sportives. I then became aware, of a drone that would take the camera! Once I invested in the the Phantom 2 and started to learn about flying, something I hadn't considered, the 'bug' bit me. I wanted to explore the possibilities and invested in more kit and the idea that I could maybe get into the business side of things. That is when I signed up to the best PfCO course in the country. I am still hooked on the adventure and am structuring my enthusiasm with the skill set the Icarus Pro course taught me ...Watch this space!

Coming from a background in stills and time-lapse photography, I moved into video and film as I transitioned to university, studying Cinematography at The Arts University Bournemouth. Since then I have had several years experience working as a camera assistant and operator in the TV/Film industry on a large variety of different productions. I have worked with almost all of the major camera systems, experienced shooting and editing 360/VR content, I am qualified diver and now an ICARUS Pro drone pilot!
I look forward to meeting and working with you.
I come from a creative background with over 25 years working in advertising for some of London's top agencies and blue chip clients. I then decided to move over to the dark side, as a client and work in marketing - a role which enables close contact with my passion for movies and have been lucky enough to visit some major blockbuster film sets and premieres, helping to gain inspiration.
As a side line I also work as a photographer and videographer for weddings and events, using a more cinematic style. My drone work enables me to expand my passion in this field adding extra production value and creativity to both my video and photography. I will be looking to broaden my horizons in this exciting industry.
