Benjy’s route into the camera department started in Los Angeles where he trainee’d and loaded various music videos and commercials, getting the chance to train under established cinematographers such as Daniel Pearl, ASC. After returning to the UK Benjy studied cinematography at the prestigious Bournemouth Film School and while there began to work as a trainee on features and TV Dramas and eventually a loader on music promos and commercials.

Since stepping up to focus pull Benjy has been working in commercials, music promos and documentaries across the UK and abroad and has extensive experience and a very thorough knowledge of many camera systems and formats, both film and digital.  He enjoys the technical, collaborative and creative nature of the role and understands the importance of running an efficient camera department, problem solving on the go and being able to adapt to whatever is needed to ensure the success of the shoot.
