I offer a full Islay videography service, from capture to edit. I shoot and edit all the videos for Fèis Ìle and have completed videos for Bowmore, Laphroaig and Ardnahoe in the past year, plus multiple social videos for various brands.
What can I offer
Up to 3 cameras recording in 4K, or up to 120fps HD slow motion.
I have gimbal and stabilisation options to create stunning quality professional videos.
Drone photography and videography options are available. I'm an experienced drone pilot and know where and how to operate a drone safely on Islay.
With a range of wireless and wired mics, great sound quality is assured.
full editing capabilities
Using Premiere Pro and the latest equipment, I can fully edit to your needs.
Why use me?
Using a local, one man videographer isn't the right choice for every project - but it can be a great way to get things done on an island like Islay. It has lots of benefits over hiring a team from the mainland.
As I'm local, it means I can be much more flexible: weather not right? No problem, I live here! It's easy to move times and schedules - and no worries over cancelled flights or ferries.
I know the people and the places here: the distillery staff, the landscapes. It means I can get the best out of the people and the time on the project.
The cost of having one man on the project, compared to a team who have to travel is immense. Some projects really suit having one creative behind it to just go and get it done.
I'm really flexible in what I can offer - if you're not sure, send me a message and let's have a chat. Working on an island you sometimes have to work and think more creatively - I enjoy that. So what are you waiting for?
