About Jack

  • Share profile:
    Freelance Director Of Photography based in London. 
    Experienced in Feature Film, Short Film and Commercial Production.
    Additionally I shoot Fashion Promos, Music Promos, TV Commercials, Corporate and Internet Promos.
    I am happy to work on any project, enjoying working with full crews and smaller 'guerilla' style units. 

    I enjoy various lighting techniques and set ups. I especially enjoy having the chance to experiment with traditional methods, employed in Noir films and studio shoots. Though I shoot a lot with large soft sources, and wall bounces and combine this with as much natural light as possible, which has become my main style of lighting over the last few years. I tend to attack each set up, by seeing how much of the natural light and 'on location' lights I can use, before complimenting it with artificial sources.

    Although I will always shoot in a style that the project and story needs, I prefer to shoot reactively. Not quite in a documentary style, but I do enjoy shooting hand held and following the story as the actors and locations reveal it. I especially like shooting a scene with stripped down camera and finding new and experimental angles s well as different ways of telling a story. 

    I own and operate Sony FS700 rig, as well as a lighting package and filter kit, and I am also experienced with many other digital film camera formats, such as RED, Alexa & Sony F Series.

    Available for hire with or without my kit and as a DoP or Camera Operator.
