I Began work in the Queensland Film and Television industry at 15 and continued to work in freelance whilst studying, as a camera assistant and freelance autocue operator for several freelance camera operators, Directors of Photography and production companies throughout Queensland and Australia. After 3 years of close ties with freelance operators and skill-based training I purchased personal audio equipment and began work as a freelance sound recordist in 2005.
I have been involved in hundreds of productions throughout the years, ranging from corporate to television commercials, drama pieces and documentaries, across a variety of mediums, both film and digital.
I am currently based in Brisbane Queensland. My business trading name is Matched Image Pty Ltd. M.I. has been running for 28-years, and we help facilitate crew and equipment for commercials, broadcast television and corporate productions. Matched Image was established in 1982 by Sam Simpson, a well-respected freelance operator, beginning operations in Melbourne, Victoria, and moving to Queensland in 1988. We had over 28 camera formats in stock as of 2013 with several support packages to suit small to medium sized Commercial, Documentary and Broadcast (EPK/ENG) production requirements.
