James France - Associate Cinematographer
Since graduating from the Adventure Media program at the University of Cumbria in 2014, James has been specialising in remote location and rope access film production. He has worked with production companies including Cold House Collective and BMC TV, and contributed to award-winning films such as our very own Operation Moffat. With a real love of the outdoors, especially the South-West coast, James can often be found in the nearest National Park searching for the perfect shot. He recently became a fully qualified UAV pilot, and we're thrilled to have such a creative, high-spirited fellow on the Light Shed Pictures team.
