About Me

I am a Midlands (Birmingham) based Lighting Camera Operator and Cinematographer with over 10 years' industry experience. I specialise in corporate work, commercials and branded content. My previous projects include shooting international advertising campaigns, music videos and gigs for Top 40 artists, broadcast TV, award-winning shorts and a cinema-released feature film.


My career started with a first class BSc (Hons) in Film Production Technology, closely followed by the formation of “Warped Noise”, a production company specialising in music videos and live events.  From this, I learned valuable business skills, which have since enabled me to refocus my efforts into becoming a successful freelancer working for companies across the UK and Europe.


I have my own kits but am equally comfortable shooting on a wide range of cameras including Arri, RED and Black Magic Systems. I'm also a highly skilled Movi and Camera Crane operator.

Travel is one of my biggest passions and I’ve been lucky enough to combine this with filming assignments in India and Tanzania, as well as a three-month tour of European film festivals for a documentary project.  I’m also a keen snowboarder, photographer and movie buff!

It's always really reassuring to see Dan turn up with his various bags and boxes of equipment on shoots. It's not just knowing that he's got the right lights and grip to support a range of client requirements, it's all the extra little bags of clips and tape and odds and sods that demonstrate the kind of problem solving mentality that's needed on the kinds of shoots we do.

Dan is a fantastic camera operator and lighting technician. He has a wealth of knowledge and experience which helped boost the production value of our commercial. He has a strong attention to detail and will keep a clear head during a demanding shoot. I would not hesitate to use Dan again.

I work with Dan a lot, and it’s no coincidence. As a fellow operator I take any opportunity to work alongside him. Ever the professional, Dan knows his stuff and is great to bounce ideas off!
