Experienced lighting assistant and digital operator. I started assisting in 2012, so I have a very broad range of assisting experience, both in studio and out on location.

I turn up on time and bring a positive and professional attitude to every shoot – along with a box of equipment (spare tape, lightmeter, clamps, extension cords, batteries, etc.) – to help get the job done smoothly and without any dramas.


Equipment Knowledge

Camera: Nikon, Canon, Hasselblad
Lighting: Hensel, Elinchrom, Profoto, Broncolor
Digital: Windows & Mac systems, Capture One, Lightroom


Additional Information

I own a station wagon with blacked out windows in the back for transporting gear.

I have a Nikon D800, lenses, speedlights and a Macbook Pro, and although I prefer not to hire them out I’m happy to discuss this on a case by case basis.

I also offer video editing and videography services. Please contact me for my rates.
