Personal Description

You can see clips and reels on-line at

Originally from Scotland I now live between LA and the Double Dog Films Desert HQ near the Joshua Tree National Park. I came to California on the scenic route via Saudi Arabia, Hong Kong and Brazil, picking up an assortment of interests and influences along the way including an appreciation for the desert, the cash to do a Masters in Cinematography and my wife, Kristina, who was visiting friends in Salvador, Bahia during my last week there. We now work together under the Double Dog Films banner and have 2 young kids, Finlay and Scarlett.

There are an assortment of clips and reels on-line at and you can see the how the family business is shaping up at

DOUBLE DOG FILMS just won a PBS/ITVS Independent Lens award for our short documentary THE McCOMBIE WAY. The film is currently being showcased on the PBS website.

Here's a clip of a National Geographic documentary in HD I shot about an 8 year old prodigy pianist. MY BRILLIANT BRAIN started airing worldwide on the NAT GEO channel in September 2007. <>

The most recent acquisition is a Panasonic HDX900 for our ever growing camera collection. I just returned from shooting with it in Vietnam & Mali for CARE Internationals latest feature documentary about Womens Empowerment, A POWERFUL NOISE
