I have over 15 years experience in documentary production and worked in various positions from field logistic support, photography, sound recording and currently mostly doing cinematography as well as field producing. I am catering production styles for both web/multimedia and standard broadcast.
I have solid guiding and expedition background, strive working in remote areas and certainly an extreme environment specialist from polar to tropical with underwater skills. Programs were essentially natural history (BBC NHU), science, various human documentaries (ABC, SBS), conservation and educational programs. Currently working for the Institute of Marine and Antarctica Science and the University of Tasmania media section.
Specific recent camera experience includes remotely controlled cameras, stabilized systems and drones (licensed operator).
