Ed is an extremely adept DP in high demand for his combination of beautiful results with a focussed, story-led approach. His work has taken him across Europe and worldwide.
Ed has just completed a 90 minute episode of VERA (ITV) and five months of filming on RED DWARF series 11 and 12, bringing a single-camera science-fiction movie feel. Other main unit credits include DRIFTERS (E4), THE ART OF FOLEY (C4), OVER TO BILL (BBC1), COMMON GROUND (Sky) and several C4 COMEDY BLAPS.
As second unit DP, Ed has shot DOCTOR WHO, UNCLE, POLDARK, ATLANTIS (shooting on 35mm), MAPP & LUCIA, CUCUMBER and more. In 2013 Ed was the last DP to ever shoot Judi Dench as “M” in a glossy promotion for PHILOMENA.
Ed's recent short film BREAK for director Nick Moss, starring John Hurt and Kika Markham, has won Best Film at the Discover and the Manchester Film Festivals.
In 2013 Ed shot his second feature THE LAST SHOWING for director Phil Hawkins, starring Robert Englund, which was released in the UK by Sony Pictures with rave reviews for the cinematography. Also with Hawkins, the spec trailer BAPTISM (shot in just three days) has resulted in a US feature development deal.
In commercials Ed has worked extensively in fashion, food and vehicles. Clients include McDONALDS, BIRDS EYE, NATIONAL EXPRESS, JD WILLIAMS, CARERS TRUST and MARS. He also occasionally works as cover for legendary aerial DP Jeremy Braben, with operating credits including MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE and SENSE8, along with many flights for commercials using both full size and remote helicopters.
Ed was chosen as one of Broadcast Magazine’s rising talents in their 2013 “Hot Shots” piece, and featured as a “New Wave” DP in British Cinematographer magazine in the same year. His commercial for the Carers Trust with Little Fish Films was voted one of the top 50 ads of their year by the Advertising Producer’s Association in 2014. Ed is in demand as a speaker and educator and has given cinematography instruction at British Society of Cinematography seminars.
In the occasional gaps between projects Ed enjoys sailing, diving and aviation.
