I currently work as a studio and outside broadcast camera operator for Sky Television.
I have also previously worked as a camera operator for Maori Television, Triangle Television, South Pacific Pictures, Butobase Television, Television New Zealand and Prime Television. Career highlights have included working as a camera assistant for Television New Zealand on Dancing with the Stars, as a camera operator for Sky Sport for the 2010 Delhi Commonwealth Games and as a camera assistant for the production of Shortland Street.
I started in Television working on Dancing with the Stars with
Television New Zealand. That experience lead to my selection for a six
month Internship with Broadcast and Film New Zealand. This was a fast
track training experience in Camera Operating and Post Production.
I learnt a huge amount from the Internship. The hours that I worked
consistently were 85-90 hours a week with very short breaks in which I
became accustomed to working long hours.
Following graduation from South Seas Film and Television School I
gained further television broadcasting experience through working with
Sky Sport, On Site Broadcasting, and Maori Television as a contractor.
In 2007 worked as a photographic re-toucher for a real estate
photographer in Wellington for six months.
During this time, I received on the job training with an expert in Photoshop.
I also learnt the science behind photographic technology and Adobe
Photoshop CS4 software.
I have also worked at Prime Television for a period of
four months as a Media Ingest Operator.
