MY MAIN CAMERA PACKAGE...

...is based around the high-end Sony PMW-F5: an extremely versatile 4K camera that is at home in any environment from live multi-cam to documentary, or corporate to commercial work.

To accompany the F5, my main lens is the premium quality Fujinon XK6 4K servo zoom. With a range of 20-120mm this versatile lens can produce tack-sharp, clean, yet cinematic images. It's perfect for a wide range of project styles and formats.

My B-Cam is the compact Sony A6500, which despite its size captures (compressed) 4K images that comfortably match my F5. It’s a very useful and capable little camera, which also shoots high-quality stills.

I ALSO HAVE...

a DJI Ronin S hand-held gimbal
a Sony 17" true HD broadcast reference monitor
a comprehensive lighting kit
a selection high-quality audio equipment
a GoPro Hero5 4K minicam
zoom demand for Fujinon lens
a location laptop with useful DIT software
and a wide range of accessories, grip, cables, and adaptors.

All my kit is flight-cased up - ready for travel abroad if required, and all electricals are PAT tested.

NEED SOMETHING ELSE?

I have an extensive network of trusted colleagues I'm always happy to bring on-board when required. This includes Sound Recordists, Camera Assistants, Editors, Additional Camera Operators, Live Streaming Technicians, Steadicam/Gimbal Operators, Drone Crew, Jib Operators, Autocue Operators, and more...

I also have a good relationship with two popular rental houses, through whom I can source all sorts of extra equipment include a range of gorgeous prime lenses, and more comprehensive lighting and grip equipment.
