Thomas in a few words

Hello, my name is Tom, I’m a UK-based Director of Photography, Steadicam Operator & Colourist. Having filmed all around the world, in some of the most challenging conditions, I have developed a keen eye for storytelling and editorial direction. If you are looking for a dependable cameraman, you have just found one.

As a DOP I am an expert in lighting, cameras, lenses, and many other technical aspects of filmmaking. All so I can craft beautiful images and achieve the specific look and feel that you want for your project to tell human stories that we can all relate to.

No matter what I’m working on, my only goal is to elevate the overall quality of your project. By using my technical expertise, storytelling skills, and creative vision I can help you create a visually stunning and engaging film.

I can work efficiently and effectively to get the shots you need, saving you time and money in the long run.

As a member of the GTC (Guild of Television Camera Professionals), I’m dedicated to the continuation of the camera profession and pride myself on delivering expertly crafted moving images for film, TV and commercial productions.



The Outlook Creative Group

Film & AV

Camera Operator/ Editor

Northampton, England, United Kingdom

October 2017 - September 2022 (4 years and 11 months)

The Outlook Creative Group is an events, digital, video and design agency based in Northampton. During my time at Outlook, I helped deliver hundreds of videos including social media content, webinars, promos, event coverage, TV commercials and podcasts to clients in a variety of industries ranging from medical and logistics to automotive and retail. Working closely with the directors and producers my duties included planning shoot logistics, organising kit hire as well as creating mood boards and lighting plans before moving into the production stage where I would lead the shoots usually as the DOP. In post-production as well as editing the content I had previously shot, I would create infographics using After Effects and add VFX and colour grades using Da Vinci Resolve. On several projects, I also filled the role of Shooting Director heading out across Europe to lead local crews solo while the production team stayed back in the UK to handle the incoming rushes.

Lighting Cameraman  - As a freelancer

London, England, United Kingdom

I joined 1080 Media TV in August of 2015 as a Lighting Cameraman to start production on the documentary Race of Their Lives 2, the TV series following the Clipper Round the World Yacht Race 2015-16. The race started in London and then went on to Rio de Janeiro, Cape Town, Albany, Sydney, Hobart, Airlie Beach, Da Nang, Qingdao, Seattle, Panama, New York, Londonderry, Den Helder before ending in late July 2016.

Ideal Shopping Direct

Film & AV

Multi-Skilled Studio Operator

Peterborough, England, United Kingdom

March 2014 - June 2015 (1 year and 3 months)

While working at Ideal World I operated and maintained studio equipment for live TV broadcasts, including cameras, lights, and sound mixers. Working with the production team, I ensured that everything looked and sounded great on air, adding graphics and going live on location. In addition, I helped with equipment setup and breakdown and troubleshooting. This position required me to learn and master various production skills and equipment, multitask under pressure, and work well with everyone on the team, even when it meant working nights, weekends, or holidays.
