Director of Under The Oak Films Ltd
Specialist Natural History Camera Operator & Photographer
Specialising in Natural History TV and Film, I have worked for Silverback Films for over five years and have recently started Under The Oak Films, formally know as K.Mayhew Photography Ltd.
To date I have worked on projects for Apple TV+, Disney Nature Films, Netflix 'Our Planet' Series, two BBC landmark series; 'Fragile Planet' and "The Hunt' I have also undertaken smaller freelance jobs including covering festivals and other music events working as a self shooting PD, often managing a small crew over the course of the event.
I hold a current British passports and am up to date with most vaccinations having travelled to many countries over the last 6 years.
I have worked with a range of specialist equipment such as underwater housings for RED and Sony F55 cameras, underwater grip kit, polecams, timelapse tracks and sliders and two Cineflex systems. I have also undertaken full training from Gates for the underwater kit and Cineflex/Shotover technician & operator training from Mike Wright.
I am very used to downloading and backing up footage on location, including assembling sequences and producing proxies to meet Apple TV+,Disney Nature, BBC and other client requirements.
My career ambition is to become a full time natural history camera operator combining and refine the skills I have learnt to date. Having been lucky enough to meet and work with some of the best camera talent in the world I understand how high the standards are and have seen first hand how to achieve that. With that in mind I have been developing my skills and experience in the following disciplines; long lens work, timelapse, cable dolly, ronin, cineflex, slider moves, hide work and many more.
