I am a director of photography, editor and creative artist producing digital branded stories for on-line, tv broadcast networks and the global advertising industry. Experienced and versatile cameraman and photographer, with over 20 years of film and print work covering a wide range of awarded corporate storytelling, branded tv commercials.

My interest in music documentary began with ILC Productions Ltd in 2005, an independent New Zealand film company specialising in biopic stories and music documentary projects with Artists in the UK, US and Europe for Universal, EMI and Decca Labels. This evolved into a full-length feature story called ‘The Death and Resurrection Show’, a feature-length documentary film on the UK band ‘Killing Joke’, with rock legends ‘Jimmy Page’ and ‘Dave Grohl’. The film is considered to be unique & one of the top 50 music documentaries to date. It has been described as ‘stunning in its intensity and an outstanding musical biography’. The film was purchased by The Sundance TV Network for a global deal and is currently playing on Amazon and Prime Video.

MY photography work has appeared in the International Photography Awards (IPA), Communication Arts Photography, Graphis Poster Book, Wire Magazine, GQ Magazine Japan and UK, Condé Nast Publications, W Magazine, Australian Sydney Morning Herald, The Melbourne Age, The UK Guardian Newspaper, The UK Observer Newspaper, UK Sunday Times Newspaper, UK Sunday Telegraph Newspaper, D&AD Book, UK I-D magazine, Shots Magazine and Luerzer’s International Archive’s Top 200 Photographers Worldwide.
