Camera 1st Assistant
I specialise in commercials/social most of the time, primarily with Steadicam and part of one of the only teams in Scotland confidently rigging, maintaining and working with the Arri Trinity. Camera prep is my favourite part of the job, creating the most useful and streamlined builds for the job ahead. When working my aim is to take away the camera-technical worries of the DOP/Operator - allowing them to be as creative as possible. I take pride in creating an enjoyable work environment for my team and the departments around us. Outside of commercials, I do 2nd/Drone Unit on Dramas and do my fair share of passion projects including the Arri Challenge in 2019 on LF, Trinity and Signature Primes.
