Craig joined the crew of the good ship Maddogs in June 2015. He got a job with us after randomly bumping into someone whilst buying a camera. True Story!
Whilst in the office, Craig is across checking kits in and out of the warehouse, ensuring all hires are exactly what the client needs, whilst making sure our kit is maintained to the highest standard.
On the road, in four years, Craig has gone from being a runner, to Camera Assistant, to Camera Operator. He also has plenty of experience when it comes to Data Wrangling and Mini Cam rigging/operating. Craig specialises in Gimbal operating, and now holds an A2CofC certificate for Drone operation.
Craig’s original contract was written up by Martin on a napkin in a pub, oh how far we’ve come since then! Although being a lover of nature, Craig is yet to successfully raise a single office pet we have given him. He still to this day blames Molly for murdering ‘Cornelius’ the Sea Monkey whilst he was on holiday.
Laid back, physically fit and with an ever-growing lust for travel and adventure, no shoot or location phases him. Craig is also a Brown Belt Black Dan in Freestyle Combat Karate. Craig is available to hire as a Camera Operator, Camera Assistant, Drone Operator, Gimbal operator and Minicam’s Operator/rigger.
Craig loves to travel, his personal best is 23 countries visited in one year!
