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. I testing and maintain it back 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 and Lectrosonics radio mics, and lavalier mics by Countryman and Sanken.
Picture sync is made possible with timecode devices by Ambient and Tentacle.
