ALEXFOUNTAIN-CHERITONBTS-070920-2

I am a Director of Photography based in Hampshire, shooting in London and across the UK. I work in commercial and narrative video content production for creative agencies, brands, musicians and drama.
I come from a background in photography and continue to shoot still images. My experience in lighting and composition informs my motion work, as does my unquenching thirst for beautiful light.

I have experience as a DoP in lighting and filming commercials, branded content, case study/testimonial pieces and also work with musicians on promotional films and music videos. I am able to work as part of a production crew or independently as a Director / DoP for smaller projects . I am also available as a gaffer for smaller location productions that need lighting and grip assistance.

Currently, I am developing my work in fiction and am open to meeting with Directors and Producers working in short and long-form narrative. I’m a BSC Club Member and have completed the Screen Skills Coronavirus basic awareness on production training.
