PROFILE

Danny is a Edit Producer/Self Shooting PD/DOP based in the South West but with a London base. Here’s a few words from Danny:

“My passion is the natural world and my career is now focused on creating beautiful films to explore and display this. I have added the skills of producing and directing to my abilities as an established and experienced DOP and Cameraman. The pursuit of the story has taken me to the frozen islands of Antarctica, the forests of North Canada & Alaska, the mountains of Colorado and the workshops of North Wales. I have filmed all over the world as a cameraman/DOP in very challenging conditions and varied terrain including deserts, jungle, sea and snow. I enjoy creating a strong narrative, believable jeopardy and well crafted storylines. I establish respectful and productive relationships with established contributors and help nurture new talent.”

With strong teamwork and great communication skills, Danny always strives to deliver with a sense of humour. He would be a great asset to any team.
