I'm an experienced camera operator/assistant with a background in Zoology. Recently I've been shooting second camera and DIT for a National Geographic series on the survival techniques of indigenous communities all over the globe.

In addition to remote/extreme location experience I have worked on UHD 4K production River Monsters for Discovery and coordinated the post-production workflow for Adobe Premiere and AVID based series such as Primal Survivor and Savage Kingdom for National Geographic.

In my spare time I produced, DoP'ed and edited a documentary, 'Working with Disability', which was premiered at the Houses of Parliament in June 2016. It broadcast on the Community Channel and has gone on to be screened at several international events as well as winning 'Best New Filmmaker' at Diversity Film Festival Canada.

Having studied Zoology at Bristol and MA Documentary at UWE, my main interest is in natural history and observational documentary. However, I'm open to all kinds of projects and I will alway bring a positive attitude to the crew. Read Less

I can't recommend Jimmy highly enough. He has been an invaluable member of the Primal Survivor location team on 6 tough, remote, foreign shoots. His main role was DIT but he also covered second camera duties (FS7, Sony A7s among others) and timelapses. The host and PDs all praised his hard work ethic and sunny disposition.

Anna Gol, Production Manager

I worked with Jimmy on several shows for Icon Films, often in remote areas and under challenging circumstances. I found Jimmy to be consistently diligent, energetic and positive in outlook while his intelligent, problem solving approach to the job and thorough understanding of the latest camera technology made him an invaluable asset on location. But Jimmy is also a naturally gifted photgrapher and up-and-coming camerman in his own right and I suspect he will soon be working as a DOP. I can highly recommend Jimmy and would be happy to discuss my experience of working with him with anyone looking for a talented contributor to their camera team.
