I'm a quick and tenacious learner, excellent problem solver and great at working on my own initiative. With the view of one day becoming a colourist, I am looking for camera trainee work to aid in my technical education whilst working towards becoming a DIT. I am also a skilled stills photographer, with a number of BTS shorts and students films to my credit.
