Recent Work

Following my studies at University College Dublin, I joined John Murray's team as a cameraman and drone pilot on Wild Ireland: The Edge of The World (2017) which won numerous awards including Best Natural History Film at the Grierson Awards 2017 and also received an Emmy nomination for 'Outstanding Cinematography'. This success launched me on a run of documentaries, including “A Wild Irish Year” (2018), “The Game: The Story of Hurling (2018), and The Hunger The Story of The Irish Famine (2020), a documentary by Ruán Magan, which won Best International documentary at DOC LA 2021.


More recent work includes A Note For Nature (2023) and Ireland's Wild Islands, both documentaries winning 'Best Specialist Factual' the Royal Television Society Awards for 2023 and 2024.

'Brian is an absolute gem of a find - he has a phenomenal work ethic, a natural eye, and an insatiable appetite for improvement. He also has the best attitude in the field, suffers through biting insects and scalding sun with a broad smile and a song on his lips. I would work with him again in a heartbeat.'
