Reliable and experienced solo wedding videographer who’s also a team player…

Associate or second shooting for weddings and events

I’ve been a photographer for more than 15 years, but moved over to wedding filming about three years ago as I really love working with sound and motion, and telling a story with the footage I shoot.

I have a natural documentary style but I’ve been told my shots are very aesthetically beautiful which I put down to my photographic background.

I do a lot of work with video now but I’m also available for photography and film photography second shooting.

I’m based in Tunbridge Wells in Kent. I’m available to shoot anywhere subject to travel costs and accommodation being covered.

I can either drive myself (and/or you) to the venues, or I can travel by train/bus and travel with you if you prefer.

My rates include up to 8 hours of coverage and I normally use my own memory cards or SSD drive for recording. I can shoot longer hours subject to agreement in advance.

I currently shoot with Canon and can give you more information on what kit I use on request. I’ve also had experience of using Nikon and other brands of cameras for both photography and filming. In addition, I’m able to use a wide variety of sound devices for recording, both in and off camera.

How much does having an associate or second shooter cost?

I’m an experienced videographer and I normally shoot for my own clients, but I love shooting for others as well, to connect with others, and get a chance to work at locations I might not otherwise get a chance to do.

Working with you and for you…

I’m sensitive to your style and if you’re interested in hiring me I’ll always check out your work in advance so I can complement what you shoot.

Most people have shots they like to capture, or certain angles or levels, and I’ll take that into account, so my footage can blend in as much as possible with yours.

My shooting style and work

If you look at my videos, you’ll notice I don’t use a gimbal, so if this is something you really need, then I’m probably not the right solo or second shooter for you.

I always aim to capture a wide variety of clips that can be used either together or with other shots to tell the story of the day. If you have any specific shots you want, or have a specific shot list, I’m happy to follow this.

Video and photo usage

Normally I take an associate or second shooter job because it’s a venue I’d love to shoot at, and to use the photos and videos for my portfolio, although I don’t use this until at least 6 months after you’ve delivered (longer on request), and I don’t tag the bridal couple.

If this isn’t an option, please tell me upfront, as my prices are based on me being able to use the footage and photos at a later date.
