I am based in Wellington, New Zealand and have worked in the film and television industry for twenty years. I have worked all over the world shooting documentaries, TV commercials and feature films. I began my career in New Zealand shooting mainly documentaries and TV commercials before relocating to Asia. While being based in Beijing, China I shot a wide range of documentaries for BBC World and National Geographic. Shooting in Russia, Mongolia, China, Tibet and Vietnam. I also began shooting film for high end TV commercials for brands such as Volkswagon, Jeep & Coca Cola.
After returning to New Zealand I began work on TV drama series as a camera operator, then on feature films for television and cinema. In recent years I have worked with Peter Jacksons visual effects company Weta digital as Lead Motion Capture Reference Camera Operator, shooting and co-ordinating camera teams on films such as THE AVENGERS, RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES, TINTIN: THE SECRET OF THE UNICORN, and most recently Peter Jacksons THE HOBBIT.
