Major Achievements: After many years of freelance collaboration, Faye joined Falmouth in 2016 as our Head of television and teaches cinematography, as well as teaching many at undergraduate level. Her contribution focuses on the teaching and development of the key principals behind lighting, camera operating and camera assisting including creative, technical and crewing considerations. Faye’s approach to teaching is creative and inclusive, valuing each student’s journey above all, regardless of where it may lead them.

Having realised her passion for cinematography at a young age, Faye decided to study the art in greater depth at Bournemouth Film School, honing her skills on Super 16mm film, which quickly led to professional work as a Clapper Loader on commercials and music videos and a documentary Camera Assistant, travelling the world in the pursuit of historical, art and people based stories..

In what has been a career of steady progression and creative exploration, Faye moved into Focus Pulling in some of the more unusual areas of Feature Films, from fake sharks and submarines underwater to explosions and helicopters in the sky. Ultimately this led to Faye’s current role as a Cinematographer on TV drama, documentaries, feature films and corporate video productions.

Faye continues to work as a freelance Cinematographer and is currently working on a feature documentary project about intuition with two inspirational Icelandic Directors.
