About

I am a video journalist, camera operator and editor based out Cape Town, South Africa. I have recently gone freelance after working as a video journalist with the BBC's flagship business programme on the continent, 'Africa Business Report'. During my time with this international broadcaster I was responsible for shooting and editing news pieces for the business programme. In addition to filming and editing the separate elements of the show I was also responsible for shooting links and editing the programme. I also shot and edited stories for daily news coverage, features as well as online specific pieces. I am also a qualified diving instructor and am able to offer underwater filming including gear. I have worked extensively across the continent including Nigeria, Sierra Leone, Liberia, The Gambia, Ethiopia, Madagascar and elsewhere. Working in Africa in often trying conditions I have developed strong resourcefulness and can work effectively and calmly under pressure.

    Jason is a wonderful DP, field producer, and editor and an absolute pleasure to work with. Incredibly talented underwater videographer, pleasant and professional. He delivered everything to deadline and was very receptive to notes and feedback. I highly recommend working with him.

    Jason is the true professional. Dedicated, smart and talented. We are very happy we found him and if you are looking to shoot in his area, check him out. We hope we have the opportunity to work with him again.
