cameraman photographer

David has worked in broadcast television for 25 years. For the last sixteen of those he has been employed by BBC Scotland as a lighting cameraman/DoP.

People and Places have always been part of his professional life and putting these people, contributors, presenters at ease is one of his many talents, together with his ability to create the best possible images in different environments in all weather conditions.

His career at the BBC afforded him the opportunity to travel to most corners of the world however his true passion is working in and exploring the rich culture and landscape of Scotland; the weather, the light, the myth and legend, the resilience, the creativity of people living and working within this unique part of the world. 

Throughout his filming career David has never shied away from his stills photographic roots. Always across technology changes and trends.
