I TEACH CINEMATOGRAPHY.com
I offer one-to-one 100% practical hands-on courses that cover all aspects of cinematography - Cinema Language, Framing & Composition, Lenses & Filtration, Lighting and Exposure.
These courses are like no other - they're not about reading manuals or camera menus, they're about learning cinema language itself.
I have 25 years of experience shooting for clients including Jaguar, Mastercard, McDonalds, Cheerios and Honda. I have shot two feature films, one of which premiered at Sundance Film Festival and the other won several Best Feature Film awards including Best Feature film at the prestigious Milan Film Festival. I have also shot three Feature documentaries, winning Best Cinematography award at the New York Film Festival.
MY KNOWLEDGE IS YOUR KNOWLEDGE
I have five courses to choose from. Each course is a full day but the days can be split into any combination you choose. You can do one day or all five days or something in-between, either consecutively or over a longer period of time - the choice is totally yours. All courses are designed to fit around you and your commitments whatever they may be. I will also travel to anywhere in the UK if you prefer to do the courses in your hometown. Above all, I want to make them as hassle free and enjoyable as possible. I want it to feel like we are on a professional film set discussing the next shot.

03 my Experience
I specialised in cinematography at Bournemouth & Poole College of Art/Design and shot five short films there, one of which was sold and distributed by Channel 4.
I began shooting commercials in the USA, UK and Canada and won several awards which enabled a long career in the television advertising industry.
After graduating from film school I worked as a freelance cameraman in broadcast television. My clients included BBC, Channel 4, ITV, MTV, Discovery.
Whilst still shooting commercials I began to shoot feature films. The first was shot in Tokyo and won many awards for Best Feature Film. The second was official selection at Sundance Film Festival.
After winning several awards I was able to find representation which enabled me to move from television into commercials and eventually feature films.
I shot a feature documentary
in Cuba which won Best Cinematography award at New York Film Festival. I am currently shooting a feature documentary in Texas.
