I am a member of the British Society of Cinematographers. I grew up in the UK, Holland and Sweden, and then studied Drama at Bristol University. I speak Dutch and French (with many errors) but reasonably fluently and have worked in both languages.

I believe at the core of good cinematography is being emotionally relevant and subtly underscoring. Increasingly TV is as brave and exciting arena as film. Often my role is in part, to keep a consistency across the project.

Period drama has dominated much of my cinematography and I am always interested by history and how you make it applicable to a modern audience and strike a visual style that informs the present. I think, some of my best work has been when there is a political relevance to underscore.

I like operating (when I can) as it brings me closer to the director and their choices, and viscerally close to the actors.

I am as comfortable shooting a $100 million period drama (Carnival Row) as the lower budget handheld “Fleabag”. I continue to shoot documentaries when I can, as they inform all my drama work. The director and content are the key.
  Awards include, Bafta, Emmy, RTS, BSC. I have shot eight feature films, many mini-series and TV movies. These include the Emmy awarded and BAFTA Best Photography nominated “Small Island”, “The Passion” for HBO and “Zen”. “Quirke”, won Best Cinematography at the BSC awards in 2014. More recently I shot “Fleabag” series 1 and 2 (RTS, BAFTA nominated, etc) and “Carnival Row” for Amazon Studios/Legendary Entertainment.

I have worked on nearly 100 documentaries, these include “Mustang the Hidden Kingdom”, “In the Company of Whales”, “Spirits of the Rainforest” and “Marathon Monks”. Recently I shot “Suzanna a Life in Music” and “Dawn of Man” which was Emmy nominated in 2016.

I have worked on a Tibetan charity project in Mustang, Nepal for the past twenty years and currently support charity Reprieve (who aid those suffering human rights abuses), by helping to make films for them.

I hold a current 0-1 US Visa, and British and New Zealand passports. Unbelievably for a DP, I am still married (at the moment)!
