As a Cinematographer and Director, I am experienced shooting TVC's, branded social content, features and documentaries - gaining festival acceptance at the likes of Raindance and The BFI.

I have been commissioned by clients including The Tate Modern Gallery, Pokemon International, UNILAD, Cannes Lions and Adidas, for which the campaign won an D&AD Pencil Award.

As a career highlight, a handful of my work has been acknowledged by some of my favourite film auteurs, such as Cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki (The Revenant, Gravity), Producer Iain Smith (Mad Max: Fury Road, Children of Men) and Director of Photography Wally Pfister (The Dark Knight, Inception).

Sam is a quick and creative DP, who can MacGyver beautiful images when under time pressure and budgetary constraints. He has an impeccable visual vocabulary, and that rare ability of being able to envision his shot first, before working towards creating it. He'll utilise whatever is available to create the mood demanded by the narrative, rather than being hampered in his creativity by either too much or too little gear. I once saw him improvising with a Sainsbury's bag as a double CTO on a remote location when the hire company sent the wrong gels. Plus, he has pet rabbits, so that's cool, I guess.


It was a pleasure to work with Sam on several projects already. One of the best directors I've worked with, a leader with a promising career, looking for challenges with a fresh and innovative vision. He is also an excellent DoP, who managed to capture some intricate, long and difficult action sequences. Highly recommended !

Sam is currently working as a DoP on a feature I'm producing and has previously worked on BBC projects for me, and I can't recommend him enough. His eye for detail is super and he is constantly striving to make the highest quality material he can. On high pressure, fast paced sets, Sam is more than up to the task and often surprises us with his ingenuity and ability to get lovely shots in tricky scenarios. As well as his technical ability, Sam is truly a pleasure to work with. Cast and crew all respect and enjoy working him and the more junior members of the team always say they learn and develop under his guidance. He is an asset to any project.
