Anchor 1



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.
