From the Winter Olympics, to a Tuareg wedding in the Sahara desert, to a remote indigenous village deep in Papua New Guinea, Stuart has captured the sights and sounds of some of the most unusual and exciting events this planet has to offer.



I always use my own equipment, investing only in kit that is renowned for its quality and reliability. I test and maintain it before each shoot at my base in Dorset, and also out in the field.


I like my kit to be both lightweight and powerful, but most of all, it has to be reliable in tough conditions. 


I use Sound Devices mixers, Schoeps boom microphones, Audio Ltd A-10 wireless systems, and lavalier mics by DPA and Countryman.

Timecode sync to cameras is made possible by Atomos Ultrasyncs and Ambient Tentacles.

Having seen first hand some of the impacts of climate change, I believe a sustainable and green future is to be embraced right now.  I am a passionate believer in using renewable energy sources, reducing waste and encouraging collaboration with like-minded suppliers and clients.

While on location I always use rechargeable batteries for everything from sound mixer and radio mics to head torches. I don’t use single use plastics and always have a supply of fresh water and reusable mugs and flasks.


Most recently I have started using a fully electric vehicle as

my main work transport, forcing me to change habits and perspectives when it comes to driving long journeys in the UK.


I record my mileage and flights using a carbon calculator provided by and offset the CO2 used by donating to a portfolio of best practice projects that help protect the environment and local communities worldwide.
