A bit about me…

I currently offer a couple of online learning courses with my flagship course being ‘How to Shoot Real Estate Video’

I live in the beautiful town of Queenstown, situated in the South Island of New Zealand with my wife and three children. I have been a professional freelance video cameraman for the last 19 years and have been fortunate to have worked on a wide variety of projects. I cut my teeth shooting news for the two main broadcasters here in New Zealand. Since then I’ve been really lucky to have worked on a diverse range of projects from television reality shows, corporate videos to chasing Crocodile Rangers around the backwaters of Darwin for the National Geographic channel to shooting on a Bear Grylls reality show here in New Zealand.

Big shows I’ve shot on include Castaway (BBC), Bear Grylls (NBC), The Biggest Loser (NBC), Road Rules (MTV), Behind the scenes shooting for feature films Lord of the Rings and The Legend of Zorro. So that’s all the glamour job name dropping I could think of, other jobs include weddings (in my very early days), shooting for-sale videos for Japanese Heli Skiers and a lot of snowboarding, skiing, motor-sport and most sports you can think of and corporate videos for many small local businesses from around my town.


Big thanks to Grant Johnston and his ‘How to Shoot Real Estate Video course’.

My first video after having took the course landed me some shoots for local agents. A phone call today informed that I was in the vendors list for the local Sotheby International office along with a meeting in the morning at their office.

Thanks again Grant.
