BAFTA Connect / Illuminatrix Rising
I strongly believe in the process of collaboration and the exchange of different perspectives. The most explosive creative conversations tend to lead to the most innovative work. I always strive to create an open and collaborative atmosphere on set to not only craft the best possible films, but also for everyone to enjoy the process.
My style is inspired by photographers such as Saul Leiter, with an obstructed view and the use of reflections, and I’m not afraid of bold colours and crafted colour pallets. I’m fascinated by the subconscious emotional response to the crafted image and lighting, and how human visual perception influences storytelling in film.
I work across fiction and documentary and I've completed 2 TV features (BBC4 and Channel4), multiple short films (some featuring in The Guardian) and various commercial projects for brands such as FRIEZE, National Portrait Gallery and Treatwell. My work has been screened at festivals such as Aesthetica, Open City Doc, IDFA, Sheffield DocFest, London Short Film Festival and many more.
I had a great privilege to be a Juror at 2022 - BAFTA TV Craft Awards - Photography & Lighting: Fiction
