Over a 10 year period he progressed to Media Manager, Digital Imaging Technician and Workflow Consultant, working with many different production companies.
Alongside this he also designed, built and programmed bespoke tech such as motion activated cameras and motorised camera sliders as well as Data Wrangling and Camera Assisting on location.
This took him around the world to locations including Iceland, Cuba, Costa Rica, Zambia and Yellowstone Park filming creatures including whales, sloths, elephants and bears!
