To get the ball rolling, I am a digital professional who enjoys watching a client achieve their campaign goals - on time and on budget.
My creative and technical skill-set is the result of a substantial and varied background as a television news cameraman with both national and international broadcasters, and as a photographer with some of the more respected picture agencies.
I cut my teeth as a news cameraman working in the often murky world of politics in and around Westminster. From there I sidestepped into filming the socially corrupt for Central TV’s ‘The Cook Report’, after which Sky News snapped me up and sent me to Bosnia and South Africa. Into a management role next at Associated Press Television News where I trained novice operators in the art of news gathering and VT editing.
Looking for adventure, I moved to France where I covered European and International headline news for the Associated Press (APTN), Reuters, CNN, and the BBC. I was responsible for many hundreds of news and feature packages during my 20 years abroad, adding multiple credits when filming for BBC flagship programmes Newsnight, Panorama, and Hardtalk, along with ITV Sport and Sky Arts.
When my career pivoted into corporate television, I used my transferable skills to help forge long-lasting relationships with blue-chip clients Airbus, Publicis Groupe, The Paris International Airshow, and the International Chamber of Commerce.
At this point, I expanded my creative arsenal by branching into stills photography, joining World Picture News in New York, NTI in the UK, Paris-based agency Le Desk and the global library, Getty Images. As time went by, the internet became a more attractive stakeholder, headline news and editorial features soon gave way to social media platforms, website content, marketing assets, and branded imagery.
It will come as no surprise that I love working with images and text, and possess a solid understanding of where and how best to deploy them. Online's insatiable appetite means that there is a constant demand for high-quality imagery, and I would be delighted to join your journey and to help shape your digital future.
