Mobile: +61 421 176 251
Tom has worked as a DP / Lighting Camera Operator for the past 12 years. Prior to this time he worked as a Civil Engineer for two years - an experience that has greatly honed his problem solving and technical skills.
Tom loves working with big and small crews alike shooting projects and bringing to life the creative visions of his clients. His ability to assist a production team to break down a scene and series of shots quickly, efficiently, and most importantly – that look great – are of huge gain for the productions he works with.
Tom has trained and gained experience under a wide variety of talented DPs and has shot across a varied range of productions from Documentary, Drama, TVC and stylized promo and fashion projects to prime-time reality television work. These projects have taken him all over Australia and abroad shooting in many different extremes such as frozen snow fields to the humidity and isolation in the jungles of the Kokoda Track in Papua New Guinea. He is a member of the Australian Cinematographers Society (ACS) and has the necessary CASA accreditation for aerial drone operation.
Tom also has a background in motion graphics, compositing and editing - knowledge that proves invaluable when crafting how to gather footage for the next project.
