I find myself saying this quite a lot on shoots, usually before deciding to get up at silly o'clock to get that all important sunrise shot. The point is, whether it's getting up at 3am or trudging up a big hill completely laden with kit to get that better vantage.. the only way you're gonna know if the shot is 'worth it' is if you give it a go. 
 
Originally from Luxembourg, I came to the UK to learn more about Natural History Film-making. After my studies I beelined it to Bristol and have been working in TV Production ever since. I thrive on location and I pride myself on always striving to capture moments as beautifully as possible. Bottom line is "I love filming". Meeting people from all walks of life, the problem solving that every shoot throws at you and most of all... that tingly feeling you get when you know you've just captured something really special.

This project took over a year and a half in the making. 5 films about 5 completely unique Conservation Centres back in my home country, Luxembourg. These films explore, through a day in the life story arc, how each centre immerses its visitor and school classes in their cultural, historical and naturally significant landscapes. It was an absolute joy to undertake this project and an extra special delight to discover the really wild side of the country I grew up in. I hope you like them. 

 

It's clear that having high quality visual information, accessible to a wide audience is key to the success of  any organisation. If you've got a story, then I would love to help you share it.

I'm a highly experienced camera -operator, time-lapse specialist and a fully licensed drone operator. Plant time-lapse has always been a passion of mine and I currently have the studio space, multi axis time-lapse equipment and horticultural necessities, such as irrigation  and indoor grow lighting to create stunning plant time-lapses.

I thrive on location and managing all the technical aspects of documentary production. I'm very comfortable shooting PTC's, setting up and cross shooting interviews and I always strive to get that extra shot that really makes a sequence stand out. During my 7 years working in TV I've been lucky enough to work on some truly fantastic television programs.
