HD Video

Being good with photography requires that you understand how light behaves. This means that you instantly have a skill set which can be transferred to video production. I started working in video soon after i began working professionally as a photographer and have progressed through being a lighting supervisor to running my own shoots. I've worked on lots of different projects and have undertaken commercial work for Sage, Johnson & Johnson and an assortment of other similar clients. Here's an example of one of my commercial jobs with Sage:

I undertake solo work as well as frequently being a freelance camera operator/ sound engineer and or lighting consultant.

I'm always working on self motivated projects, and always look to produce content based around things i feel passionate about, like music and sports.
My strengths in music are that i have an HND in sound engineering which means i can being a lot of technical understanding to any shoot, and that was the case with guitarist Eric Bibb and saxophonist Neil Perry. Eric's album "Bookers Guitar"
was voted the best blues album of 2010. Here is a sneak preview of the video i co produced
with my partner for all things video In House Films. I was running sound on the day and shot
the still images, here is the video which includes a cameo by me at the start....:
