Tom has worked as a Director of Photography and Lighting Camera Operator for the past 12 years. He has worked across a large range of projects for his clients and works hard to exceed their expectations everytime.

Tom loves working with big and small crews alike to shooting projects and bring 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 productions ranging from Documentary, Drama, TVC, social media and fashion projects and prime-time television work. These projects have taken him all over Australia and abroad shooting in many different extremes such as frozen snow fields of Australia's high country, scorching Kimberly deserts as well as wet humid jungles in Papua New Guinea. He is a full member of the Australian Cinematographers Society (ACS) and has the 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. 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.
