About Me

Videography, editing, and production services

Videographer in London, Video production, video producer,

Welcome. I am a self-shooting Videographer, Video producer and director with more than fifteen years of experience. Based in London, I have traveled and filmed around the world and in a huge variety of environments.

I have produced, directed, and edited videos for events, brands, products, entertainment, fashion, travel, technology, food and drink, sports, conferences, training, and hundreds of interviews. I have high-quality filming equipment at my disposal and broad editing and motion graphics capabilities. Depending on the scale of your project, I can work alone or provide and manage a team of professional crew members.

I earned a degree in film production in 2004 and have had formal training and certification in multi-camera TV directing, professional lighting, health and safety, and working with children from working at the BBC.

My work includes projects for advertising agencies such as JWT, AMV BBDO, Grey, and RKCR/Y&R, as well as the BBC, where I directed an entertainment programme for BBC2 and produced video content for Sports Personality of the year. I also co-developed a successful TV show about video games and produced and managed the successful SBTV tech and gaming YouTube channel. I have made videos for Visa, Airbnb, STA Travel, The Kraken Rum, 3 Mobile, Lenovo, EA, Movember, The Army, The Bank of England, EE, BAFTA, and The BFI London Film Festival.

‘David has been an absolute pleasure to work with and the consummate professional. He assisted at relatively short notice with a video piece to be shown at a high profile event in front of 100 CEOs and role models from the insurance industry to showcase the impact on our staff of the Bank of England’s various diversity and inclusion initiatives. He understood the brief and creative vision perfectly and the final product was extremely well received by all!’
