Trudging across the Bonneville Salt Flats in the Utah Desert, filming interviews in a Bali prison, spending 4 days with the legends of surfing (a dream come true) for a 60 Minutes story, capturing cars whizzing past at 150km/hour, chasing criminals on foot – I’ve experienced some pretty magic moments behind the lens in my time as a cameraman.
I worked at TVNZ since 1999 and in that time I filmed pieces for Holmes, Close Up, Fair Go, 7 Sharp, Sunday, 20/20, One News and Breakfast. I travelled extensively for stories, including filming stuntwoman Zoe Bell in LA and spending five weeks covering the Greece Olympic Games. I’ve covered many big events, from the Schapelle Corby trial to top-tier sports (the World Rally, NZ Rally, V8 Supercars, Rugby World Cup, All Black and surfing tours) through to disasters like the Christchurch earthquake and the Bali bombing.
Since leaving TVNZ in 2013 for a lifestyle change, I’ve continued to work for production houses and most major TV networks, as well as helping businesses. Recent corporate work includes filming for Vodafone, Sherson Willis (Spark & Tiaki projects), a product video for a Papamoa business and more. I’m happy to send you examples of my work on request.
