My creative journey has started about 10 years ago when I first got into a creative photography. At the start it was just a bit of fun, but it quickly became my passion that never went away.
For many years photography was my main creative output, but at some point filmmaking took over. Very soon after getting into film-making I started working on professional projects, both corporate and creative, which was the best motivation to move forward. As well as being an independent Photographer/DP, I’m also one half of A&Y Productions, which is a small production company specializing in Creative Video Productions. Apart from that I often work with different directors & production companies on both corporate and creative projects. So far I’ve worked on over 20 short films and music videos as a DP and also about to complete my first feature as DP. I love creating beautiful images, both still and moving; both formats have a lot of similarities, so my photographic experience certainly helps me achieve better results in my video productions. I’m always looking for engaging, creative compositions, unusual angles, different use of lenses, cinematographic techniques. I love playing around with lighting, enhancing the depth and shape, making subjects stand out within the scene or blend in if needed. I also like using equipment like stedicams, jibs and dollies to enhance the shots and add the production value to whatever I’m working on.
Apart from my love for a creative side of filmmaking, I’m a big fan of the technical side and how accessible the filmmaking tools have now become in recent years. About 6 moths ago I’ve started my own website dedicated to low budget filmmaking, www.budgetfilmmaker.co.uk where I do my best to help the other filmmakers get the best equipment for their money, especially if they are on a low budget.
My current goal is to produce more great work that I would be proud of and to work on more creative, interesting projects and of course enjoy life.
I own and have access to a lot of film-making and photography equipment including:
My rates are negotiable depending on the length of the project and the equipment needed. Contact me for more details.
