Can i HIRE YOU TO MAKE A VIDEO FOR ME?
Unlike photography, it's hard to give price estimations for video work without knowing more about the project. In general, expect prices upwards of £750. If that sounds good, drop me a message and lets start shooting!
BEARSON - WANT YOU (RAILWAY EDIT)
Whilst road-tripping across Croatia on the way to join Summer Sail Week, we came across this railway line and got overexcited (to be fair, it was our first time using our new camera gear abroad). When we got home, I put the shots together in the style of a music-video film, and this was the result.
I like doing this kind of short-form content to balance out the long, and editing this has made me very keen to produce a music video sometime in the near future...
Reclaim the night - t-shirt promotional video
The client? Sara Heddi, Womans' Officer at The University of Manchester Students Union. The task? To produce a 40-second Boohoo-ad-inspired film to promote the launch of their new t-shirt range, and to capture several images which would support the campaign.
Within days this video had 8000 views on Facebook, 175 likes, and multiple shares. And the t-shirts sold out! Sara and I were pretty happy. Read the journal post about how I put the video together here.
My 2017 recap video
Inspired by some of favourite YouTubers and Instagram photographers who have done the same thing, I put together a one-minute fast-paced recap video of shots from this past year.
Take a look, and let me know what you think...
My first wedding video! katy and ciaran andrews
In June 2017, I agreed to shoot a video for the September wedding of Mr and Mrs Andrews in Manchester. A fairly non-traditional wedding (and the first I'd ever attended, let alone shot!) it was quite the baptism of fire, and a really exciting project to work on.
I'm very much looking forward to shooting my next wedding - do get in touch if I can help you with yours!
sUMMER SAIL WEEK - CORFU 2017
Whilst sailing in Greece during June of 2017, I put together a short 2 minute video of what we got up to whilst yachting around Corfu. Read more about my trip to Greece here!
This was the first video I've filmed using the Zhiyun crane stabiliser and the DJI Mavic Pro drone - I think it's fair to say that they both make a tremendous difference to the quality of the shots.
Better with Bing
I recently worked with the Microsoft Bing Ads UK team to create a video publicising an event which they were holding in Manchester. The purpose of the event, "Better with Bing", was to reach out to small to medium business owners in Manchester, to educate and inform them about how they could better promote their business.
Along with fellow photographer/videographer and good friend George Amies, I produced two videos for Bing, one for internal use within the company, and one for external use to promote the event to a wider audience.
Milk and Eggs
During the summer of 2016 I worked with my old friend Robert Tomkins at ExploreMore Media in Edinburgh to produce a portfolio piece for his business.
Titled "Milk and Eggs", the film centres around the extremely talented up-and-coming trials-bike rider, Tristan Jackson, as he becomes distracted on a short shopping trip. The film was shot over three weeks completely on location near Tristan's home on the Isle of Skye, and involved some very early mornings to catch the sun rising over the beautiful landscapes.
Working with professional-grade equipment, and a DJI octocopter, I took on the role of 2nd AD and drone-camera operator. Since it's release, the film has had over 11,000 views on YouTube, and has been shared by many - including legendary Scottish biker, Danny McAskill.
