Jacques is a born and bred Londoner with a zest for life..
When Jacques isn’t behind the camera he can be found caring for his family, traveling and volunteering, which in turn enables him to gain an understanding of people from different walks of life and cultures.
Jacques spent 18 years working for Sky in the UK, with 12 of those directing the major campaigns for Sky Sports. He has directed shoots around the globe, shooting in Brazil, the Caribbean, Europe, India, NZ, South Africa, UAE and the USA.
Jacques has an innate gift of making talent, both professional and street cast feel comfortable and natural in front of camera, be it one of the biggest names in sport, kids, or even a pack of wolves. Jacques always delivers the desired performance required for each film.
His cinematic approach and storytelling ability always has his audience fully engaged and his work has received industrywide recognition, with his F1 season launch, featuring a pack of wolves, earning him the ‘Best Director’ at the 2015 Kinsale Shark awards. He’s also picked up multiple accolades at both Promax UK & Europe awards.
He is comfortable working to extremely tight timings with talent and last year alone he shot with players from each Premier League club as part of his work for the Sky Sports channel rebrand, which included forty-four shoot days in five months for the various channels…
With a wealth of experience already under his belt, Jacques has already shot commercials this year featuring Manchester City and United, as well as campaigns for Landrover, Red Bull and The Big Issue.
