Video


As well as corporate videos (e.g. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8xQwAvpPauY), I video events such as the Jane Austen Festival (e.g. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=upFjt8-5Fwo); classical/jazz concerts such as those organised by Bozarts at St George’s in Bristol or the intimate gigs performed by the Bookshop Band at Mr B’s Emporium of Reading Delights in Bath (e.g. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4CoONIC1UJc); documentary projects such as a “Day in the Life” DVD for singer/songwriter Jane Taylor, and promotional work for Clifton High School in Bristol.

As DoP and Camera Op I have worked with a variety of other agencies around the South West and even for Green Buzz who are based in Washington DC (for whom I filmed interviews in London including world-renowned architect Richard Rogers).

I also video lots of plays, having filmed at Bristol Old Vic, The Egg, Rondo, and Mission all in Bath, Birmingham Rep, and various smaller theatres and schools in Wiltshire and Somerset.

I can work as director of photography, camera op, editor, director in any combination. Final output can be at any resolution upto 1080p, usually for the web but I also create DVD or Blu-ray discs. My main video camera is broadcast quality. I can build a team to suit any production from my list of producers, make up artists, set designers, costume designers, and other video crew.
