Initially I trained as a stills photographer shooting several photo-documentaries in India, Cuba, and in Spain, where I produced a series of photographs on 'La Cultura de Toros' (The Culture of Bullfighting).
After studying for a BA in Contemporary Media at the University of Westminster I went on to train in 16mm cinematography at the Northern Film School in Leeds where I achieved an MA in Film Production. I wrote my dissertation on Chinese Cinematography.
My passion is Africa and so consequently I have filmed documentaries in Nigeria, Togo, Benin, Senegal, Ghana and Uganda. Hence I have considerable experience and knowledge of working in West Africa.
I lectured in cinematography at Leeds Metropolitan University for 9 years, and also did three years teaching on the MA Film production course at the University of Salford. Working for such national organisations like First Light and Mediabox I lead and mentor youth video projects enabling young people to make their own films.
To date I have won several films cinematography awards including Best Cinematography at The International Black Film Festival for 'Laters' in 2004.
