Iain is an industry veteran whose skill as both a cinematographer and a director make for unforgettable visuals. Born and raised in the U.K., he earned a degree in photographic arts and film from Polytechnic of Central London (PCL) and cut his teeth as a cinematographer before entering into directing. A passion for craft and a talent for filmmaking quickly established him as a successful hybrid, a focused and technically savvy director who lenses his own projects.

In the years since, Iain has worked with clients including Coors Light, The Home Depot, Lexus, Visa, Campbell’s, Mercedes, McDonald’s, PNC Bank, Dow, Subaru, and many more, making his mark across the U.S., Europe, and Australia. He has earned countless awards including numerous Cannes Lions, D&AD Pencils, London International Advertising Awards, and a spot on Campaign Brief’s list of the top 20 directors of all time; he is also a member of the Australian Cinematographers Society.

Iain’s prolific body of work ranges from dramatic to humorous and linear to surreal, but each piece is always anchored by a firm sense of story and atmosphere. His camera skills and innate storytelling ability allow him to craft a complete story within every single frame, leaving viewers immersed and fulfilled.
