As a skating camera operator, my work offers a unique perspective and sense of immersion. I not only film on the ice but on roller skates too, meaning that I can beautifully capture a wide variety of dynamic content. The equipment I can use ranges from handheld gimbals to full Steadicam rigs, depending on the project requirements. In the past, I have worked with ITV's hit TV show Dancing On Ice to produce captivating footage of the celebrities' training process.
Having skated for many years - on the ice and rollers - I have competed both nationally and internationally. Alongside this, I have always maintained a love of film, which resulted in me studying for my Film And Television Production Bachelor's degree.
When fellow skaters asked me to make showreels of their skating, my camera and I took to the ice. The experience was so different and the result was so much more captivating than anything that could be achieved standing at the side of the rink. I delight in the videos I am a part of and I am always looking for new possibilities for myself and my skates.
I offer one-to-one and group ice skating lessons at Queensway ice rink, London, for skaters of all abilities and ages. Skating has always been such an important part of my life and I take pride in sharing this enthusiasm with my students.
