Coming from a background in advertising, marketing and publishing, I have spent many years working with designers, copywriters and photographers in the production of press advertising, direct mail and off-the-page selling.
As a Master Member of the Institute of Videography with twelve years experience as a cameraman and editor behind me, I believe that I have a well developed understanding of what is required to make an effective piece of video communication.
As a producer, I am personally involved in the filming all our work either as a cameraman or director and we bring in additional cameramen, sound and lighting crews as required.
I have also worked for many years as a semi-pro musician, so have a good understanding of performance, music presentation, sound recording and all things aesthetic!
I am currently a member of various creative and business groups in Manchester and Lancashire.
