Original Kinemacolour camera still working and shooting film.

Born, bred and educated in Australia, I started with the camera department of the ABC in my native Sydney. I came to the UK in 1971, joining the BBC's camera department and over the next twenty two years photographed some ninety complete productions. I am experienced on both film and videotape, having worked across a broad spectrum of programme genres; from Schools Television to Drama. I have worked in almost every country, from the mountains of Afghanistan, to the sewers of the Ukraine, from the plains of Africa to the jungles of New York City. I pride myself on being able to develop a close, easy relationship with directors and I am always in demand.
