Video Capture and Post Production

Capturing and creating finished video movies is now a natural extension to my photographic work. I approach video work in much the same way as photography, understanding light and composition and telling a story., I am just now tapping into my broadcast television media background.

If you are interested in discussing your ideas I will be keen to chat further to see whats possible. Costs may be less than you think.

A few samples of recent works for personal portfolio, customer commissions and some not for profit projects.

A little bit of history...

Before I took up photography as a full time occupation I worked in the broadcast television media industry for over 28 yrs, BBC trained in London, I worked in Soho Post Production houses before freelancing in some exotic places (and more less so). I finally came to rest in BBC Scotland in Glasgow. It was fun while it lasted.

So, when I left the BBC (again !) in 2006 my attention was very much into still photography. However due to a combination of factors least of all the advances in imaging technology and creative software where stills and video share so many practices I find myself back in video production, and loving it !

A little more about our video production services.
Videos can take various forms from a simple slideshow of still images with music and voices to a fully produced moving image movie with music, in-vision speech and voice over.
We offer simple graphics and visual effects but for more complex graphics and animations we would seek to have these elements produced by an animation specialist.
The final programs are produced as a High definition video master that can be converted into various formats for Youtube, Vimeo or your own website as well as for presentation on screen or projector.

You already have your own media ?
Whilst I prefer to capture the visual images ourselves to I can work in collaboration with a customer by using suitable supplied stills and video material.

Want to make your own video ?
I can offer training in either basic or more advanced video production. All of my post production utilises industry standard video production software  (primarily Adobe CreativeCloud) on desktop and tablet computers... and yes, using a smartphone to capture a video is fine by me !
