Stills Photographer / Sound / Film
A commercially experienced photographer spanning 15+ years.
Most recently I have upskilled into videography for smaller productions and commercial efforts along with pursuing a commercial interest in audio capture and production.
I own my own equipment and am very familiar with its use.
I enjoy working on sets and have crew credits for two local productions (Stills and Audio)
I own my own 12x6mtr studio with a custom green screen and plan on upskilling into more of this type of work.
