I was trying to celebrate 30 years of shooting commercials by making a "favourite 10" video. I couldn't do it so there are 11 :-) Starting in 1985 a lot are from SD and uppressed but they seem to hold up pretty well.

I started as a stills assistant in fashion & advertising in 1970, moving into moving images in 1973. After shooting news, documentaries and music videos I made the move to  commercials  in 1985. I finally made the move to  movies  in 2005 after a couple of false starts :-)

I've always been excited about creating images and the technology to create those images. I'm still as excited about filming now as I was when I started. I also believe strongly in sharing knowledge and training, this is reflected in the  Cinematography Mailing List  which I established in 1996 and the amount of workshops that I teach. I have taught workshops in..New York, London, Bristol, Bucharest, Los Angeles, Atlanta, Amsterdam, Paris, Brussells, Sydney, Canberra, Brisbane, Melbourne, Munich, Adelaide, Sydney, Perth, Singapore, Auckland, Colombo, Hannover and Mumbai.

I've won awards from:-

SMPTE (Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers) Eastman Gold medal

BKSTS (British Kinematograph, Sound & Television Society) appointed Fellow

BSC (British Society of Cinematographers) Bert Hardy Technical Achivement

ACS (Australian Cinematographers Society) honorary member

NSC (Netherlands Society of Cinematographers) full member

In November 2013 I was appointed Visiting Professor at the University of the West of England.
