    Filming in the Cambridge Union Society with 19 unique audio sources and 4 camera views, and just one videographer!

    Really pleased with my efforts on Friday at the Cambridge Union Society.  Had eleven speakers, 4 camera angles to set up and look after, 7 audio recording devices and only me to organise all of this with minimal fuss to those presenting or organising the event. Really pleased with the images produced by DSLR cameras or Nikon D800 and D610 to be specific.  The lighting in the venue was variable but the beautiful backdrop of this historic building gave for […]

  • Donating your skills and time to charity work is rewarding in many ways.

    Donating your skills and time to charity work is rewarding in many ways.

    No matter what size your business giving something back through charity work actually helps promote business as well as being a lot of fun. That’s why I try to offer a free filming day for any of my larger corporate clients if they have organised an event such as the Mills and Reeve tackle 4 Welsh Mountains. We were blessed with beautiful late afternoon sunshine, but this came at the cost of would possibly be the most torrential downpour of […]

  • Happy to rush out my rushes

    Happy to rush out my rushes

    It’s a rather wet and dark October Monday and it’s certain that winter is on its way.  So in an effort to fight off winter blues I have my S.A.D. lamps at the ready and have stocked up on vitamin D. So today’s task of getting some rushes over to a client from a shoot on Friday has been rather nice.  I’ve just looked up to the bin containing all of the 12 interviews, recorded amazingly in less than a […]

  • All Change at the next Station

    All Change at the next Station

    Had my cameras and was passing Radio Verulams so thought I would pop in and see how the refit was going.   It certainly is all change, and fortuantely had my 15mm f2.8 fisheye lens with me.  Felt a bit like an estate agent, but pleased with the photos. Amazed at how much more space there looks like there is going to be with both the main and second studio extended into what was corridors.  Nice little detais such as […]

  • Roland Anderson plays Bach’s Cello Suite no.1

    Roland Anderson plays Bach’s Cello Suite no.1

    This video tests out some of the vast capabilities of my Nikon D800 digital SLR camera and features the talents of my friend, professional cellist Roland. It’s not easy to film a musical performance from different angles but I am very pleased with the result which is very informal and intimate. The sound quality is excellent and the lighting works really well. I think it captures Roland’s love of the music and his passion for his instrument.

  • Dragons’ Apprentice Challenge Launch Event 2015

    Dragons’ Apprentice Challenge Launch Event 2015

      It’s always great to see so many different schools, businesses and charities coming together.  Penny Mortimer (pictured left) is a true genius coming up with ‘The Dragons’ Apprentice Challenge.  Creating links between business, schools and charities has done so much for not only raising money and passing on business skills to children, but has been a great networking and publicity machine.  Even filming from the side lines it has been great to be involved last year and I’ve got […]
