I spent a month during summer 2008 in Helmand Province in Afghanistan with Ross Kemp filming for his new series "Ross Kemp - Return To Afghanistan". We were embedded with Delta Company 5 Scots and 1 Royal Irish as they carried out frontline operations against the Taliban near Musa Qaleh, a former Taliban town stronghold now under the control of the British military.

This assignment saw me film graphic and close up combat footage in the "Green Zone", of British soldiers carrying out their primary role against the Taliban as well as life around the base camp. The whole programme including the extreme combat footage scenes on patrol were shot on a full size Sony F900R HDCam camera.

"Ross Kemp - Return To Afghanistan"

"The first thing to say about Jonathan is that he is brave and extremely enthusiastic. No task is too difficult and he welcomes new challenges with genuine zeal and interest.

He works fast and always gets the most out of any location or situation, giving you great options in the edit. His shots are beautiful even in the hardest of environments and time limited situations.

He is great at following actuality and puts any contributor at ease but most of all he is a huge support on any shoot, a brilliant source of ideas and fun to work with."
