Ed had a passion for shooting stills and printing them from as an early teanager . But his primary passion as a young adult was rowing, he gained numerous medals nationaly and international including a Commonwealth bronze. It wasn’t till he found his way onto a film set by a chance that he knew what he wanted to do for the rest of his life. He disgarded his Petroleoum Engineering degree to persue a career in film. He worked his way up through the camera department from 16 mm documentary assistant to focus puller on Music Videos and commercials, along the way getting a taste for travel on numerous documentaries including the original BBC Blue planet series.
His break to start shooting came by being asked to shoot low budget 16 mm fashion editorials for MTV. Out of that came a chance to shoot Music Videos shooting a huge variety of styles from gritty guitar bands to glossy R and B with a few number ones on the way. His work got him noticed in commercials building up to shooting for brands like Nike, Playstation, and Range Rover. But it wasn’t until he got a call for a small film called Severance did he get a chance to do narrative. He loved it. Since then he has continued to shoot narrative projects alongside commercials; including the Van Damme Volvo Epic Splits for which he won awards for including Canne and New York film festival. He has managed to keep his narrative work varied: from the Indie style Black Mirror Arkangle directed by Jodie Foster ,the period piece “ The man who would be Bond” (for which he was Emmy nominated )to the action feature London has Fallen. Recently he shot for HBO Warrior which is set in the Tong Wars of late 1800s San Fransisco’s China Town , The Wilds coming of age story for Amazon and Blithe Spirit a period comedy based on the Noel Coward play.
