Adrian initially trained in multi-camera drama and LE productions for BBC Birmingham, with live experience from day one in the studio.

He progressed through OB's of all genres before spending several years working on single camera for film, drama and factual shows as loader, focus puller, operator and lighting cameraman; you got to do it all at the BBC in the old days.

Adrian became freelance in 2000 after working as a BBC guarantee supervisor with a number of freelance supervisors, notably Phil Piotrowsky.

He has the ability and experience to bring a multi-camera brain to a single camera shoot and the attention to detail of a single camera operator to a multi-camera production.

Amongst the highlights of his working career, Adrain lists:

  • Live 8
  • Jerry Springer The Opera
  • Funeral of Princess Diana
  • All creatures big and small
  • The IT crowd
  • Live Earth
