It’s not often you can say you’re doing something you wanted to do since you were a boy!
I'm a Director of Photography based in London. I've made a career shooting high profile projects in commercial, documentary and drama genres. I love working across different platforms and feel its increasingly important in this face paced digital world.
I've shot TV commercials and digital content across the globe for brands like Dove, Nestle, Audi, EE, Royal Mail, Garnier and Swarovski among others.
My commercial work has been featured in various publications, including Ad Age, TIME, The Huffington Post, Creativity, In Style, AdWeek and The Guardian. Recent work has been shortlisted for the ADCAN awards.
Over the last 7 years, I've shot numerous landmark documentaries for the BBC. A joy and privilege to shoot, some of these projects have been nominated for BAFTA and Grierson awards. Benefiting from a drama and film background, I aim to produce cinematic images in my documentary work that not only contribute but enhance the story.
I have also filmed numerous well-received shorts, which have screened at Raindance, Cannes and London short film festivals.
Film has been a longstanding passion of mine. It has fuelled my motivation and drive to work in this industry and I love the collaborative filmmaking process. It’s a constantly evolving machine and I pride myself on discovering new ways of enhancing the vision.
THE QUEEN THAT NEVER WAS
When Edward VIII abdicated his government and his country blamed Wallis Simpson. As this elegant drama-documentary argues, however, the future Duchess of Windsor was less a scheming arch-villainess than a woman who calamitously miscalculated her relationship with the king and ended up trapped in a hideous gilded cage.
THE DAY THE DINOSAURS DIED
This documentary paints a very real picture of the whole scenario, showing new evidence that supports the theory of the dinosaurs' deaths and what happened to the rest of the world after the impact of the meteor that killed off the dinosaurs. It is breath-taking and intriguing.
ALBERT PASSION, PREDUJICE & POWER
IN POST PRODUCTION
Feature length Scripted Drama Doc exploring the life of Albert, the Prince Consort and his rise from Pauper Prince to King in all but name.
HORIZON - GOODBYE CASSINI HELLO SATURN
An emotional science documentary is a rarity: astrophysicists discussing their work tend to elicit awe and admiration rather than untrammelled weeping. This edition is awash with tears, however. It is like a real life Wall-E, a programme that brings us a human heartbeat to Cassini’s amazing interplanetary transmissions.
HORIZON - WHAT MAKES A PSYCHOPATH
This disturbing edition of Horizon was a ghoulish hour as Professor Uta Frith dug deep into the minds and motivations of violent psychopaths.
This ghoulish hour, surely the darkest in the strand’s 53 years, stalked about the recesses of the broken human mind
THE BEGINNING AND END OF THE UNIVERSE
Jack Seale, writing for The Guardian, commends the Al-Khalili for, "his usual mix of spectacular locations, clear explanations, a few gags and the stories of scientists who made crucial breakthroughs." Gary Rose, writing for RadioTimes however points out that while Al-Khalili is "as watchable as ever"
