Kasabian - Tour Videographer
Yorkshire lad born and bred, I moved to London to study Graphic Design at Central St Martins. After graduating I worked at numerous Soho post houses, where I got to grips with editing, working alongside established creatives and film directors.
Then I worked as Art Director at Point Blank / Exposure, writing and conceptualising digital campaigns for a few years, before cutting my teeth on shooting and directing BTS Fashion videos for Vogue in Milan, Paris and New York. It was here that I mastered the art of capturing interesting shots in unplanned and frantic environments.
I took my love of music and turned it into directing music videos. No stranger to recording and making music, I landed the gig as tour videographer for Kasabian, where I got to travel the world documenting the band. On my return I went on to film Damon Albarn’s solo record recording process and shot album teasers for Liam Gallagher..
This was followed by directing a string of fashion spots for Bally, Dunhill Top Shop, Bench, Ben Sherman, Swatch, Lacoste, Puma and Levi’s and content for magazines Dazed & Confused, Wallpaper, AnOther Magazine and Instyle, as well as directing branded content for Inov8, Gore, Aston Martin, Audi, Stella Artois, L’Oreal, Cadbury’s, Umbro, Sony and Debeers.
