I believe there is no way of acquiring intense images from outside a situation-so I create the poignancy of my images by getting involved in situations with a deep respect for the people I’m filming. My style or ‘look’ is created by framing, camerawork and lighting – not through brainless adaptation of visual fashions or hip gadgets. I am a cameraman thinking in artistic, conceptual and journalistic ways; taking pride in mastering my craft I appreciate a professional working-climate.

Daily self-improvement, learning and acquisition of technical, professional and human experiences, open-mindedness for new technologies and styles are not inconvenient duties but thrilling aspects of my passion for filmmaking and storytelling.
