Offshore reel

commissions documentary

I have held the BOSIET/HUET qualification for over 10 years which has taken me to some some really interesting places as an offshshore cameraman/DP and photographer.

Having upgraded my tickets to include MIST and Escape Chute I'm qualified to work on oil and gas platforms all over the world and have filmed many installations in the UK and Norway. 

Working offshore isn't just about having the right qualifications, having experience of permits to work and safety procedures onboard are vital, I'm always aware of keeping myself and everyone around me safe  and keeping any disruption to a minimum! My equipment has been honed down to a good size, easy to transport by helicopter but still including 2 cameras, grip, lighting, sound and time-lapse kit whilst always sticking to the regulations regarding batteries.
