Videography Portfolio

Blossom Festival Fierworks

I have over 10 years experience in creating and editing video.

All of my work so far has been compilations of digital works or, for specific events, as ‘part of the action’ rather than as a witness by professional assignment.

I believe my experience will help me to step up to more professional video capture and production.

Winterstellar 2020

This includes:

Patience and Planning

My astrophotography will show you that I am very comfortable working outdoors and can display the patience required to get the right shot.

Astrophotography is also a good example of the application of a combination of imagination and technology (in the form of star mapping apps) to plan what the right shot will be, months in advance sometimes.

Photography Equipment

I currently shoot with two Fujifilm X-A3 mirrorless DSLR cameras with two different lens options. I also have a tripod and am not averse to using the camera on my phone where appropriate.
