Video journalism

Before I lived in Copenhagen, I worked for five years as a video producer at the Associated Press in London. As well as editing stories for broadcast and online, I shot news features for AP—such as this one about two guys who grow oyster mushrooms in used coffee grounds.

As a freelance VJ in Denmark, I shoot a range of news and feature stories for AP, such as this one about a Belgian artwork visiting Copenhagen harbour, or this one about the world's best hotdog competition. I've also shot stories for Pear Video, in Shanghai, and AJ+—Al Jazeera's online news and current affairs channel—such as this story about a supermarket tackling food waste.

As well as the usual suspects in my kit bag—lights, mics, cords, cards—I carry a camcorder for news-gathering and a DSLR for the prettier stuff.
