I have been a lighting cameraman for three decades and have gained a wealth of experience along the way. Despite the rapid rate of change of video formats and equipment, I have embraced new technology and techniques to offer state of the art filming and lighting.
I have been very lucky to film an incredible variety of locations. This has varied from being surrounded by a dozen badgers in the woods, to filming open heart surgery in London’s leading teaching hospital. Broadcast credits include several television commercials both at home and abroad, as well as well-known shows including Countryfile, Newsnight and Scrap Heap Challenge.
Nothing sharpens your camera skills like live television and I was part of the team bringing stories from Southampton General Hospital over a period of 4½ years. The show, City Hospital, aired on BBC1 in the mid-morning slot and I was regularly filming Nick Knowles.
I own and operate full 4K cameras with the latest LED lighting in addition to tracking and jibbing equipment and have my own Green Screen Studio in Hamble, Southampton
This video gives a flavour of the wide variety of projects that Andrew has worked on. This includes filming badgers on the doorstep of their sett, Naval ships on sea trials and everything in between.

Case Study: Showcaves
We were asked to produce two, ten second commercials as part of the Sky AdSmart campaign to promote the National Showcaves Centre for Wales.
This behind the scenes video shows how we used both the jib and tracking dolly in the subterranean caverns. For lighting we used battery powered LED lights to illuminate large caverns and passageways.
“The workshop is a brilliant thing for someone to do regardless of where they are in their business journey. It adds a very professional look to your business, for your website, for LinkedIn and YouTube.
It’s a really good opportunity to learn some new skills and to come out with a really, really useful product.”
Jane Brookes - How Management Mastters
“It’s been a great day and I would recommend if from two aspects. What you get to come away with is brilliant, it’s very professional and very well done. It was just an overall good day, there were really good people to meet and we’ve had some great conversations.”
Mark Holes – Eighteen Wealth Planning
“What I loved about the day is that I could get new photos and a video done together. We created a really good 90 second video to promote the business and great head shots. Both are great assets for my website, social media and all forms of digital marketing.”
Karen Williams – The Book Mentor
“If you need to get a video done, you should come along to this workshop I think to have the bonus of having Steve taking photographs as well, you really feel you’re getting a double whammy in terms of benefit.”
Adrian Bold – Bold Internet
“I particularly liked the fact there are other people working on their video's. Being privileged to hear the feedback they received, meant we could improve ours in the moment, which meant we got excellent value from the time invested.”
