The images shown on this page are from some of the programmes I have lit over recent years.  They are not in any particular order.

The pictures do not necessarily represent my best work - rather, the intention is to give an indication of the range of programmes for which I have been lighting director.

 

The pictures are grouped into comedy, music and entertainment.  Click on the category to jump to it.

The first group of images here are taken from the Christmas special of  2 Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps - When Janet Met Jonny.  It was shot on location and  on two stages at Ealing Studios.  This episode was quite different from the normal sitcom series (of which I lit several), being in the form of a fantasy flashback.  Throughout the show the action was punctuated with musical numbers which were in the style of well-known pop songs.  We attempted to recreate the promo videos that went with the originals in a quarter of the time and with a tenth of the budget.  Jamie Cairney was the cameraman.  He lit the four numbers that were shot on location (and did a superb job) and the rest, shown below, were lit by me in the studio with Jamie as camera operator.

These images are taken from television programmes for which I was lighting director. It has not been possible to obtain formal permission for the use of all of the images on this website. I apologise sincerely if this causes any problem. If you were involved with one of these productions and wish a picture to be removed, please contact me and I will be happy to oblige.

Thanks...

I am greatly indebted to all those who have assisted me over the years in the programmes shown above.  In particular, the console operators and moving light operators who have somehow crafted quite acceptable pictures out of the dodgy old lighting rigs I have given them to work with!

It is always dangerous to single out individuals but some of the very talented operators I have relied upon to make me look better than I deserve include names (in alphabetical order) such as David Bishop, Andy Clark, Pete Dale, Andy Dobbs, Stephen Emmett, John Ford, Danny Greene, Russell Grubiak, Andrew Harris, Gill Hersee, Richard Jarrett, Jerry Kelleher, Dave Knott, Darren Lovell, Ian Reith, Julia Smith etc.etc.etc.

I have also been extremely fortunate with the gaffers and chargehands I have worked with in the past few years and amongst many very good ones I owe thanks in particular to Bob Anderson, Jake Astle, Bob Bandoo, Paul Bobbin, Gary Bryant, Justin Denchfield, Greg Fitzgerald, Darren Fletcher, Mikey Howard, Alex Kouropis, Jamie o'Hare, Steve Pinder, Clive Sait, Joe Sherno, Mike Sherno, Andy Stacey, Matt Try, Roy Winfield and of course all the many willing and able sparks who have worked with them.

Of course, the pictures I produce are directly affected by how they are racked and I owe huge thanks to vision engineers such as Rob Bradley, Neil Broadhead, Luke Chantrell, Rachel Donaldson, Dave Griffiths, Simon Lyon, Jim Murphy, Gemma o'Sullivan, Steve Williams and many more.  Every sitcom is also given a grade and I'm particularly grateful that an extra gloss has been applied by talented colourists such as Nick Adams, Tim O'Brien, Jim Hogan, Vince Narduzzo, Colin Peters and Joe Stabb.

Whilst I am at it I must also thank those companies who have provided such excellent equipment and service over many years - in particular, John Copping at Cirrolite, Colin McCarthy at Comac, Tony Slee and Chris Rand at ELP, Simon Roose at Panalux and Steve Wells at Richard Martin Lighting.

Thanks to everyone who has worked with me over the years, including of course those not mentioned above.  Your help was genuinely appreciated.  Sorry I can't list everyone but you know who you are!
