Thanks for checking out my Patreon page.
I'm a commercial director of photography based in Manchester, UK.
Along my journey I have found that sharing information and speaking with colleagues is the key to growing and educating yourself.
I have always liked to share information about my work, but found it hard to be consistent.
I am also a father to a beautiful little boy which in itself can produce challenges in the freelance world. With your support I want to begin sharing free content again by creating weekly in-depth posts on how I approach each commercial and film shoot. Through lighting diagrams and camera setups, I want to help you on your way to becoming a better shooter.

I intend to start a fortnightly podcast, speaking with colleagues in the industry including fellow DP's, directors, editors, gaffers and producers. With your support you can influence the questions I ask in order to get the best information available.

I see this as a new, exciting chapter in my journey and hope you'll join me for the ride.

I can't do this without you.
You'll be helping me create the content, giving me the reason to produce the material to help educate others with the knowledge I have picked up along my journey.

With this tier you'll have access to my activity feed and blog posts.

The Masterplan
$5 or more per month
Invitation to my private Facebook group.


As well as access to the Patreon timeline and first access to the new content, you will be invited to join my Facebook group to help build the community.


In the group I share research and development information and I'll be uploading some great Google Doc templates that I use for budgeting, quoting and invoicing all with built in formulas that I have tweaked over the years.

Keep The Car Running
$15 or more per month
You really want me to start this podcast, don't you?

Access to the blog posts, BTS content and the podcasts (once goals are met).

As well as access to the patreon group, you will be eligible to take part in the Live 1-on-1 Q&A session in the group. 

Goals
38 of 100 patrons
This is a huge goal for me, hitting 100 Patrons would mean I can start to spend a little more time writing blogs and making videos. Right now, I'm doing it when I can find the time, hitting this goal would mean I can at least set aside a couple days to really concentrate on creating the content that you guys like.
