I have experience with Canon and Sony cameras and have also used medium format cameras. I have experience with Profoto, Elinchrom and Arri lighting. I frequently use CaptureOne when processing and capturing images and have some experience as a Digi.

One great project I have worked on was assisting on a shoot for local organic farms. I got to see the project through to the end as I edited the videos too.

I am also a nice guy and am very easy to get on with. I hope that you will keep me in mind if you find yourself in need of an assistant.
