    ‘The Video Camera Course’ is a combination of simple and advanced camera skills that I have developed into an easy to understand complete learning system. A fast and effective method to help you to be able to shoot any type of video project like a Professional Cameraman. How to shoot professional looking video with your video camera or DSLR or even your iPhone, it doesn't matter what type of camera it is, it is about the skills and knowledge. The great thing is, you can do the whole course online, in your own time. Many times in my nearly forty years as a professional television cameraman I have helped people to start to learn the skills that us old guys just take for granted.

    I have been a visual storyteller for over thirty years, and I still love it. I am a Location Cameraman so in my time I have not only had to learn how to shoot well, but also how to light well and do sound well. Over the years, I have shot for nearly every conceivable type of show on television. 60 Minutes, So You Think You Can Dance, Australian Idol, Good Morning Australia, Great Outdoors, Better Homes and Gardens, Location Location, The Hot House, Surf Patrol, Sky Racing, Fox Sports, Hot Property, and countless more are all shows that I have worked on.

When video cameras came in I knew that was the way of the future and happily learnt the new technology. I was then given the opportunity to move to BTQ Channel 7 Brisbane to work on a Current Affairs show and stayed at Seven for the next seven years, working on all of their shows including Childrens shows and Sports shows and Magazine shows.

    I have been shooting for nearly forty years, the first twelve years were with the television networks and during that time I worked on every conceivable TV show from current affairs to children's shows to commercials. Once I made the decision to leave the Seven Network and to go and work freelance I found that I was getting work from even more of the major national shows such as Better Homes and Gardens, Great Outdoors, and the Sunday programme. To this day I still work on many national television programs. When I went Freelance I also began to get a lot of work shooting staff training videos, safety induction videos, corporate videos, and government information videos. I still shoot in all these fields today and some of the projects have been for Caltex, BP, Origin Energy, Ergon, Yamaha, Sandvic, Qld Rail, Qld Transport, and the list is nearly endless. Whilst working in these various...
