About / Contact

Hi, my name is Liam

For a number of years this website served as a folio and entry point to my still and moving image making work.

As of 2018 I am no longer freelancing as a motion picture professional and am instead training and working in the horticulture industry.

I remain a multi-skilled, creative, passionate maker, with over a decade of self-driven work behind me as a motion picture professional, photographer, communications professional, touring musician, record label manager and promoter, and small business owner.

And now, a student of the fascinating world of plants.
