Sound Recordist

I am experienced across all genres and was originally BBC trained.  Since leaving the BBC in 2001, I have continually invested and replaced where necessary with the latest and highest quality broadcast equipment.

I carry with me a large selection of kit, including spares, to be able to adapt to the majority of recording situations.

I am happy to work with a variety of camera operators (see 'links' section on website) and also enjoy working on self-shooting PD projects.

I carry with me on all shoots : 5 channel Sound Devices 552 mixer (with built-in timecoded SDHC Card backup recorder), 3 channel SD302 sub-mixer, 2 channel SD MixPre sub-mixer, 6 radio mics, radio stick mic, Schoeps CMIT radio boom mic kit, 4.5" 16:9 broadcast monitor, walkie talkies, radio links for multi-camera shoots, director's radio headphone monitoring kit, Digital stereo audio wireless TX link to camera with wireless timecode TX. Wireless  iPad Timecode Slate for Canon 5D/7D shoots.

I have a hire stock of Sennheiser G3 UK38 radio mic channels and IEM receivers, suitable for self-shoot PD projects. Please enquire for prices & availability. Kits include spares and camera mounts.  Large discounts for long term hire.

On request I can supply  : M&S Stereo mic kit, portable hard disk multitrack recorders, playback facilities, digislate, timecode lockit boxes for multi-camera shoots.

I have extensive experience in using and building large scale multi-channel radio mic systems and multitrack recording using Sound Devices 744T and 788T, Pyramix or Sadie PC based hard drive systems.
