“Mike is my first choice as a cameraman. His lighting and composition are excellent and, as an operator, he has an uncanny habit of always finding the right part of the action, with the right framing, and holding it for the right amount of time. With his qualities as a hand held cameraman his proficiency as a Steadicam operator is no surprise!”

JONATHAN BOOTH – PRODUCER/ DIRECTOR
“Mike is one of the best cameramen I’ve ever hired. I’ve used him for numerous film shoots over the last 15 years, and he has never delivered less than superb images. His work ethic is impressive, particularly in obtaining shots before you ask for them – he has an instinctive eye. He’s also great fun to work with, which helps! Always the consummate professional lens man. Can’t recommend him highly enough:”
