What you have enjoyed most about working with Rotolight?
Being able to pre-visualise and shape the your light, combined with Rotolights ease and simplicity of use with the intuitive interface making them a breeze to shoot with, and always still so much to explore. Rotolight being a family run business in this day and age speaks volumes about the way I like to work, it’s the human touch that nails it for me. You know the lights have been tested and tested again and not rushed to market. The Titan X1 has become my ‘go-‘to light source, supplemented by the AEOS 2. I can’t wait to use the NEO 3.
Your favourite project you have worked on?
There’s a few I can’t separate – Spending a year with Luis Figo in Madrid, Anthony Joshua from before his fight with Dillian Whyte to his win over Wladimir Klitschko at Wembley, and the first 7-8 years of Robbie Williams solo career shooting extensive documentary worldwide, and PR and album artworks.
Current favourite is working on SCTR – a flourishing new platform for young creatives
How would you describe your style?
Always a tough question ! Meticulous preparation combined with a distinctive and creative use of lighting, looking to achieve the best results through a relaxed yet professional style.
