Experience as an Adventure Filmmaker
I'm an adventure filmmaker with a wealth of experience in challenging locations. I've documented extraordinary landscapes across the UK and various countries worldwide. My portfolio includes adventure films shot on roads, mountains, bikes, in water, and amidst snow-clad terrains.
Gear and Tools of the Trade:
In my quest for adventure filming, I rely on a carefully selected arsenal of equipment to ensure the highest quality results. When on the move, I opt for lightweight and compact cameras, such as the Sony FX6 and Sony a7s3, to capture the essence of the journey. Drones play a crucial role in capturing stunning aerial footage, adding depth to the story by showcasing the beauty of the locations. Additionally, I utilize GoPro action cameras, strategically mounted to immerse viewers right into the heart of the action. The use of long-lenses can enable close-up action whilst remaining a safe distance from the subject.
I approach adventure videography much like any other form of filmmaking, with a strong focus on storytelling. It's not just about the adventure; it's about why that journey matters. Connecting the audience to the significance of the experience is paramount. I weave these narratives together with breathtaking visuals to create a cinematic experience that captivates.
Passion for Adventure Beyond the Lens:
Outside of filmmaking, adventure is not just a subject; it's a way of life. As a keen climber, mountain biker, hiker, and canoeist, I'm no stranger to the thrill of exploring challenging terrains. Whether hanging from ropes, perched atop a mountain, or paddling through frigid lakes, I thrive on adventure. My passion for adventure extends to my work, inspiring me to ignite the adventurer in everyone, encouraging them to embrace the unknown, cherish our planet, and experience its beauty through the lens of my camera.
