About Odyssey Films
I'm a freelance DOP, drone, camera and Steadicam operator working out of New Zealand and the UK (currently in NZ).
Yorkshire TV gave me my first job as a staff cameraman in 1996 and a couple of years later I moved to NZ. Then began a 20 year working relationship with NHNZ, an international production company making ground-breaking factual TV for the biggest global broadcasters. I am proud to have shot over 30 different productions for NHNZ in various parts of the world. Other international clients include; Pioneer Productions, Windfall Films, BriteSpark Films, CBS, Sony Tristar, Gibson Group, South Pacific Pictures and Beach House Pictures.
Steadicam and drama operating were mainstays of my earlier career. More recently I have transferred these skills to my love for documentary and wildlife cinematography, joint passions that have given me experiences and challenges beyond even my craziest dreams.
As an ex extreme sports junkie I can safely capture compelling images in spectacular locations. But I’m driven mostly by the story telling, the power of film and TV to move people, raise awareness, promote initiatives and create change.
As a DOP I come with a diverse range of cameras, drones, lighting, sound and grip equipment, plus a 4WD vehicle to put it all in. Check out this page for my gear list, most of which is also available for dry hire.
Please give us a call if you’d like to find out more, chat about a project or hire some gear.
