Robin is an award winning lighting cameraman, with a background mainly in natural history, adventure and science/history based documentaries. His work to date has taken him around the world, filming in locations ranging from the Siberian Arctic to the Kalahari Desert, for all major broadcasters.
He has more than fifteen years behind the lens, working as both a sync cameraman on presenter and character driven documentaries, and as a wildlife cameraman filming animal behaviour. As well as shooting, he has also directed and produced on a number of productions, including films for the BBC’s award winning series, The Natural World. At home operating in extreme environments, Robin is an experienced climbing instructor and mountaineer, holding an IRATA Rope Access Certificate. He is also a HSE Part 4 Media Diver, with many credits as an underwater cameraman.
Prior to embarking upon his career as a cameraman, Robin spent twelve years teaching adventure sports in outdoor centres around the world. This allowed him to gain a number of commercially recognised teaching qualifications in climbing, canoeing/kayaking, rafting, sailing, power boating and snow skiing, further adding to his effectiveness whilst operating in extreme environments.
Robin is confident working with all current cameras and formats including: RED, ALEXA, PHANTOM, F5/55 & C300.
Whether he’s lighting an interview, instinctively reacting to actuality on the shoulder, or filming rare Birds of Paradise in the remote jungles of Papua New Guinea, Robin thrives on the challenge of delivering high quality images, that can truly bring a story to life.
