WHO AM I

 

I'm an experienced lighting cameraman and video editor with over six years experience in both the corporate and creative video industries. I've worked on a wide range of projects across the UK, from the corporate world of live event filming, training videos, promotional clips and interviews, to the more creative side of films, TV production and visual effects.

 

WHERE AM I

 

Based in Peterborough, one of the UK's fastest growing cities, I have easy access to many of the major towns and cities in the country. A lot of my work takes place in London, but aswell as being only a 50 minute train ride from the capital, I have no problems in traveling to the likes of Milton Keynes, Birmingham, Leeds and beyond.

 

WHAT I OFFER

 

Full Video Production

Whether your looking to shoot a quick interview or the next big Hollywood epic, I can work on a B2B level and provide a full video service from start to finish.

 

Camera Operator

If your an agency, PR company, marketing specialist, or a production company, I can work with you on a freelance basis and help get the best coverage for your event/project.

 

Video Editing

Not every project will require a cameraman, but they will require an editor to put it all together. I can work directly with you on a freelance basis on site or from my office in Peterborough and help provide that finishing touch to your video.

 

Old Fashioned Advice

Entering into the world of video production can be a tough and daunting prospect. If your an individual or company who just want a helping hand then drop me a line. I don't claim to know everything, but I've certainly gained some crucial knowledge over the years in the industry that I'll be happy to share.

 

 

WHAT MAKES ME TICK

 

For as long as I can remember, video has been my number one passion. Inspired by the likes of Danny Boyle, Steven Spielberg and a childhood of watching as many TV programmes and films, I’m driven by the ambition of wanting to create my own videos that inspire and evoke the same sense of joy I had growing up.
