About Us

“Hawk as a company feels homegrown, like a family, the effort and craftsmanship they put into their lenses is amazing. Everything is done in-house – building the lenses, coating them, calibrating them. They use their science to support us as we turn it into art.” – Terry Stacey, ASC

Our Team

STEVEN MOULSHER | General Manager

With over 20 years experience in the camera rental business, most recently working for the Panavision Group, I have gained a vast knowledge of lens, camera and lighting equipment to draw from.

I can’t wait for DP's and crew to start flooding through the doors at Hawk London, we believe it will be a unique experience, something a little bit different to what’s on offer from current UK rental houses!

CAMILLE BRAYER | Client Contact

I am exited to start at Hawk London with the new team.
A film fanatic since I was 11 years old, I am excited to share Hawk's cinematic vision and helping filmmakers transpose their vision on film or sensor using some truly exceptional glass. I am looking forward to welcoming crew and production to the Hawk London space at Here East.

OWEN TANNER | Camera Department Manager

I’ve worked in camera rental for the last 10 years. Most recently as Camera Department Manager at Pixipixel.
I’m passionate about storytelling and how the equipment we choose can subtly enhance our images.
I have always been a huge fan of the anamorphic format and the way it can transport us straight into a cinematic palette. I can’t wait to get started at Hawk London and to get my teeth into all the fantastic kit that has been so hard to come by in the UK until now. I look forward to talking lenses with all of you and helping achieve your vision.

BEN CRIDGE | Lens Technician

As a proper lens nerd with experience servicing and maintaining a wide array of cinema optics, I could not be more excited to be part of the Hawk family. As someone who loves watching, discussing and being involved in the creative process of film making, I look forward to having many conversations about which lenses are the right choice for each project. Equally, I am excited for the continued satisfaction and technical challenge of keeping our lens fleet in perfect working order.

Experienced Cinematographer with a serious passion for all things film. My love for the craft began as a kid, when I was completely obsessed with 90's movies.
