London-based Video Production and Documentary Videography

I am an award-winning freelance videographer based in London. I specialise in short-form documentaries, cinematic videography, and content creation for non-profits and businesses around the world. This has included filming events, interviews, artistic performances, DRTV adverts for broadcast, and PR and comms videos for organisations.

I have worked as a camera operator and editor for over seven years, with extensive experience working internationally, having filmed in over 20 countries on topics including climate change, neurodiversity, animal rights, the plight of refugees, and artistic expression and suppression.

My videography background

I graduated from OTOXO Production’s documentary filmmaking school in Barcelona in 2014 and began working as a freelance videographer. In 2015 I worked as a videojournalist for the online news organisation Palestine Monitor, based in Ramallah in the Occupied Territories and also produced arts and culture videos for the Middle East Eye

Returning to Barcelona, I created StopPressFilm and continued to produce videos for Catalan and Spanish NGOs and I worked as a news camera operator for PressTV - an Iranian news organisation. 

I moved to London in 2017 to provide videography services for SPANA, which gave me the opportunity to travel extensively to developing countries. This honed my skills in intercultural communication, working with subjects to tell their stories, and managing filming logistics in challenging environments.
