Cameraman - lighting, filming and sound recording
Using the latest 4K cameras I film live events, interviews, performances, presentations, promotional footage, films for broadcast, social media and websites. As well as filming I am well practised at making the most of the available lighting conditions or setting up suitable artificial lighting. I am confident in recording contributor sound, sync sound and atmosphere audio tracks using a variety of microphones.
Using my well-tuned storytelling skills, my production includes short-form promotional video content for my clients’ online sites and social media channels. I am adept at telling stories that help to engage viewers and raise awareness of particular topics.
