I started my career as an actor on stage and screen, specialising in dance and movement, before moving behind the lens and completing an MA in Cinematography (with distinction), at Goldsmiths, University of London, where I trained under Witold Stok, BSC.
In 2017 I was shortlisted for “Best Cinematography” at the Watersprite Film Festival for the short film, Angst. I’ve worked as the cinematographer on numerous award-winning shorts, documentaries, commercials, music videos and an international indie feature film, The Bones on Greenwich Shore. One of my documentary highlights was shooting Coughing Up for Gold, a multimedia documentary project about South African miners dying of silicosis, which won the African Media Story Challenge in 2014.
One of the many joys of my work is the varied places and people it has shown me: from the Scottish border towns, to the Zambian Copperbelt, or the remote, rolling hills of the Eastern Cape in my native South Africa. I speak English, German, French and Afrikaans and am based both in London and Cape Town. I am naturally curious, an unashamed coffee snob and a dog lover; and when I’m not carrying heavy cameras around the world, I like to test my mettle in the confines of the boxing ring.
