Since going freelance, he has been lucky enough to work on some notable features including Peter Mullan’s Magdalene Sisters which won the Golden Lion at Venice and Discovery at Toronto; Deepa Mehta’s Oscar-nominated Water and David Mackenzie’s Young Adam.
His feature documentary work includes Maja Borg’s Future my Love nominated for the Michael Powell Award and the critically acclaimed From Scotland With Love.
