How I learned to stop obsessing and just get the job done.

Attention to detail is brilliant in a lot of circumstances, however, can also be incredibly time-consuming. 

Have you ever finished a project and then been hung up on one tiny detail that has stopped the project from being complete? This is when you need to pause and examine what is really going on. 

Ask yourself: Am I using my time wisely? Am I being productive? Of course, you should never let your standards slip, but recognise the cost and time that is going into making something ‘perfect’. 

I have noticed I have become a lot more productive now I have let go of the idea of over analysing and perfecting everything. It was something I had to let go of in order to move forward in my career. 

Yes we would all like to be perfect at everything we do, but the reality is especially for a freelancer is you need to hit your deadlines and use your time effectively. 

Of course I hold myself to high standards when it comes to my work, but if you over analyse everything you are doing it’s never going to get done!

Portrait Photography

For portraits and glamour/beauty shots, always love to use the Godox Ad600 pro with a beauty dish.

A beauty dish is a photographic lighting device that uses a parabolic reflector to distribute light towards a focal point. The light created is between that of a direct flash and a softbox, giving the image a wrapped, contrasted look, which adds a more dramatic effect.

Nothing else will give you delicate, sculpted shadows that make cheekbones pop!


Really excited to show you all some of the amazing clients and businesses I have been able to work with this year.

I know for everyone this year has been difficult, however I am so grateful that it has lead me to work with some of the most incredible people.

The music I choose for this showreel reflects how I feel… you ain’t seen nothing yet! 😉

This year for me has been about focusing on improving my skillset, taking time to sit back and reflect on what I can improve on and where I really want to take my business. Focusing on the important things on life and most importantly focusing on what YOU CAN control, not what you can’t.

This has no doubt a tough year for everyone, especially self-employed people. However, do not let this stop you. Keep working towards your goals, do not let that small voice in your head stop you.

Every step, no matter how little is one step closer.

It’s not always about how big your camera set up is!

I meet so many people who want to get into videography and will buy the most expensive camera they can afford or go into debt on the one they can’t. I also see a lot of people jump at every new gimbal/camera/gadget as soon as it’s launched.

I feel like it’s more important to master the basics such as composition, exposure, frame rate, camera movements etc rather than focusing on buying the newest, largest camera or gadgets. 

The same goes for lenses. I know buying more lenses should make your life more versatile on shoots but I feel too many lenses makes everything a lot more complicated than it needs to be. 

I only have a handful of lenses and 1 lens which I will shoot the majority of things with and you will find it’s the same with many other professional videographers. Equipment is heavy. I will always try to only carry what I will need. 

When I first started photography I could not afford a camera. In fact my first job the owner actually let me use his camera which was nice but it was ancient! The CF card was massive yet had little to no memory, it was so slow, always ran out of battery, it was a nightmare if I’m honest. BUT it meant I had to be really creative to make the shots work. Including once borrowing a light from a bar that was used to light an icebox because I didn’t own any professional lighting. 

There is always going to be something better, but never let that stop you from creating here and now. Never feel intimidated by someone because they have more equipment than you. 

Equipment cannot make up for knowledge. An experienced videographer can use a beginner camera and make it look professional. 

Don’t get me wrong I love playing with new cameras, but I only hire them when the project requires me to do so. 

There is no greater tool than your imagination – nurture it, embrace it, create with it and most of all be inspired by it.
