An experienced freelance camera operator, filmmaker, editor & stills photographer, Adam is primarily a Sydney based cameraman but shoots worldwide, from Pacific islands to the Arctic, in between working as a multi-screen video artist.
He specialises in creative work, web documentary and multimedia video production, with an emphasis on arts, performance and environmental themes.
Adam's artistic research & practice centres on a multi-screen form he calls the video polyptych with which he explores cognitive dissonances underlying our responses to climate change. Building on his documentary background he is undertaking a PhD at the University of New South Wales' Faculty of Art & Design, exploring aesthetic visual representations of anthropogenic global warming.
