This showreel was cut in January 2014, all material was shot and edited whilst on deployments for BBC News.
The majority of foreign deployments took place in 2011 and 2012 as the Arab Spring took hold.
There were also assignments in Mongolia, Burma, Yemen, Kosovo, Gaza and Israel. As well as UK based shoot/edit assignments with the Olympic Torch and Olympic Games in London.
In 2012 I returned to Kosovo to shoot and edit this five minute piece for BBC1 World Olympic Dreams. It was my first play with the Canon 5d, alongside the PMW 500 and GoPro.
Although Kosovo declared independence from Serbia four years ago, it is not formally recognised as a nation by the International Olympic Committee (IOC).
Kosovo's top athletes discussed their frustration at not being able to compete internationally.
In 2011 the Arab Spring was the catalyst for my first foreign deployments as a shoot edit for BBC News. I had multiple deployments to both Libya and Cairo, and worked in Yemen, Tunisia, UAE, Jordan and Bahrain.
It was an incredible year, from being tear gassed in Cairo to taken hostage in Tripoli.
I was in Tahrir Square the night the Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak fell from power, and in Tripoli when Gaddafi's forces were finally overthrown.
A second deployment to Egypt, November 2011. In the run up to the elections a second wave of demonstrations and violence led to a number of deaths.
This was a last minute deployment travelling through the night, straight into Tahrir Square to shoot and edit a piece with Jeremy Bowen and Cara Swift for the Ten O'Clock News.
This piece with Jonathan Beale reporting was shot in May 2011 during the conflict in Libya.
France was at the forefront of military action and its flagship vessel, the Charles de Gaulle, was positioned as an assault ship. I shot and edited on board for the BBC Ten O'Clock News.
Three months after Colonel Gaddafi's death a senior official in the town of Bani Walid told the BBC that people loyal to the former leader were working to restore the old regime.
The BBC team (Gabriel Gatehouse, Debbie Randel, Kevin Sission and myself) took the long route around Bani Walid to avoid the northern checkpoints and gain access from the south. On route we came across a convoy of heavily armed militias heading towards the town for a possible attack.
A hundred days after the capture and killing of Colonel Gaddafi, the BBC was shown further evidence that his former supporters were tortured in jail.
Prisoners at a military facility in Misrata said they had been beaten, whipped and electrocuted.
The medical charity, Medecins Sans Frontieres, said it was suspending its work in one detention centre in the city because of an alarming increase in torture cases.
This 'torture' piece was shot and edited before the Misrata piece, and before the announcement by Medecins Sans Frontieres that it was suspending its work at a detention centre in Misrata.
The BBC team (Gabriel Gatehouse, Debbie Randel, Kevin Sission and myself) traveled to the town of Assabia, eight kilometres south of the capital Tripoli, where there had been reports of villagers being tortured to death.
The Libyan government accused Nato of killing civilians in an air raid on a village in the west of the country.
Officials from Gaddafi's administration took journalists to see damaged buildings in Majar, south of the city of Zlitan, a village they said had no strategic value.
Nato said their target was a military one, and civilian deaths were unlikely. The BBC's Matthew Price reports from Zlitan.
This was an on the day seven minute piece that I edited for Newsnight. A time pressured edit with six days worth of material to ingest and log that was shot by someone else. Although I did include some of my shots from the day before in the final edit.
I was one of the first cameramen in Tahrir Square as the Egyptian Police tried to return claiming to be with the protestors, after Mubarak had lost power. They entered carried on shoulders shouting 'the police and the people one hand' but were forced away by the angry crowd.
A showreel dedicated to material shot in the UK during 2009 and 2010, for The BBC News Channel, the BBC 1 News bulletins, and BBC Breakfast.
This showreel was cut before the Libyan conflict, it focuses on the night the Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak fell from power.
It also includes a trip to Yemen, when the BBC's Diplomatic Correspondent James Robbins and I accompanied British Foreign Secretary William Hague on a tour of North Africa and the Middle East.
We took in five countries in three days visiting Tunisia, Yemen, Bahrain, UAE and Jordan.
In November 2010 I took my new GoPro to Indonesia to have a play and see what it could do.
I was really happy with the results and cut this short surf film. All shot on the GoPro.
