I’ve spent most of my professional career making television documentaries for UK, American and Canadian broadcasters. I’ve done my best to steer clear of reality television preferring the idea that I’m better suited to holding up a mirror to the world I’m trying to understand, recording what’s happening in front of me rather than provoking an event to film. For me the process of making a film is as important as the end product as it involves teamwork, trust, friendship and understanding between all those involved. When this chemistry is right it’s a joyful and rewarding experience. Perhaps the greatest pleasure for me is interviewing people, an extended conversation, knowing when to remain silent and when to ask the big question.
I present links to selected films and series I’ve made over the years.
I continue to work with film in support of my photographic practice.
