Hi I’m Ian,
a freelance cinematographer
based in Sydney, Australia.

Hi I’m Ian,
a freelance cinema-
tographer based in Sydney, Australia.

I have over 10 years experience in video production in a range of modes, from corporate communications, interviews and testimonials, through to events, content marketing, education and documentary work.

Clients have trusted me with productions across Australia and abroad, whether it be working alongside their team on location, or sending me independently to engage with the brief and guide the production to a great result.

In 2014 I received an Australian Video Producers Association Award for Documentary, for a film I shot and post-produced – ‘Camden ANZACs – Our Story’. In 2017 I was fortunate to spend a month in Kenya working on the Animal Planet series ‘Big Cat Tales’, and again for the second series in 2019.

why work with me

I have a tireless work ethic and attention to detail and treat every project as if it were my own.

I’m well-practiced across many departments on set, covering lighting, audio and camera operation whilst engaging with the brief and providing direction to help guide the client to a great result.

I am comfortable working completely autonomously – engaging with the client on set, executing the brief and solving any problems as they occur in order to return with a great product. Of course, I also love working in a team and having each member bring their own skills to the table for the good of the project.

Please don’t hesitate to contact me for further information, and feel free to view my following showreel, and projects, as they will give you more insight into my offering.

BRANDS I’VE WORKED WITH

WHAT CLIENTS SAY

I hire Ian as a freelancer because I know that he will always give 100%.  He is meticulous and has an excellent eye for detail, which means that I have every confidence that he will deliver the best possible footage for me and for my clients.

Ian is technically minded and always pursuing ways to improve his skills and the results from his work.

Ian is reliable, courteous, and trustworthy, and he always maintains good rapport with our clients.

Dave Cowling

Director, Videoworx

Ian has been a pivotal freelance crew member with Cornerpoint Studios now for well over 4 years. He has a great eye for detail and is an operator I’ve never had to micromanage.

Ian is great across various formats of production, from multicam shoots, through to highlights, interviews, and mini-documentary shoots. He is always courteous, reliable, well-equipped and good-humoured.

If you’re looking for a camera operator who goes above and beyond, Ian is your go-to guy.

Gavin Walters

Executive Producer, Cornerpoint Studios

We’ve worked with Ian regularly because he consistently comes up with the goods without excuse or exception. He’ll get the shot and he’ll get it right. Sometimes that’s gonna mean one more take, but that’s what you want. He gives us variety and creativity in his coverage of what on occasion could otherwise be dry material, but he has the eye, the talent and the experience to bring our primarily corporate subject matter to life.

When I think of Ian the phrase that comes to mind is “Attention to detail”. That goes for his craft but also for those other important qualities you want in a freelancer such as his client facing skills through to his prompt transfer of files at the conclusion of a fast turnaround job.

In short if someone’s going to let you down it won’t be Ian.

Doug Suiter

Head of Production, Your Film

Ian is a rare find. His technical abilities are outstanding and his effortless ability to work autonomously, combined with his solid communication skills mean that he is a real asset to any production.
