Production Lighting & Grip




I don't profess to be a full time gaffer & I don't have a lighting truck. What I do have is a reasonable selection of kit and 30 years of experience on set in a variety of roles. Over the last 5 years I've invested in gear as I wound down my video business and now I'm semi-retired and enjoy working for local production companies lke OOTS, RollingBall, Mike Garrick et al. 


Here's some of the TVC's I worked on as gaffer,  I'm currently lighting a feature doco and happy to look at any job as long as it's local to Newcastle, Hunter Valley or Central Coast



My day rate is $500+gst

Half-day $350+gst
