    About me

    I'm a very experienced, reliable, safe pair of hands yet very creative Lighting Cameraman, Shoot / Editor.

    I shoot TV news, Corporate film, Documentary and Explainer videos, Sports, miscellaneous different promotional shoots, parties and Weddings too!

    I edit with FCP X. I regularly shoot and edit for several clients and film and edit them.

    I have a wide range of films and clips to watch on Vimeo, and my website.

    I have two cameras, one for News and the other for Corporate / high end films. Lots of mics, lights, Green screen and monitor and 2m slider.

    So can film big live corporate / press conference type events and fast moving things with my Panasonic AJ PX5000G (ENG news) camera, with its Canon HJ 22 servo zoom....

    Or...my Panasonic Varicam LT with Canon EF lenses and 4K capability is always working on a variety of projects with me.

    I'm just outside London, handy for all the motorways, or airports, and have a Volvo XC70 Estate ready to roll.

    My kit can fly..all cases ready.

    I regularly work and have worked for for ITN and BBC, ZDF, ARD (German TV), TF1, Arte and many international broadcasters and lots of production companies.

    Rates are reasonable, realistic, and negotiable, and need to include VAT or that can be excused with foreign clients.

    Happy to discuss, and be thrown in to any scenario, early morning to overnight.

    Additional Information

    Love to play music too, and play banjo, mandolin, blues harmonica and slide guitar.

    Referees

    Working with Gordon is always predictable. We take him to a space with challenging lighting conditions, a limited lighting budget and half the time he'd like to set up. He shakes his head, mutters slightly then gets on with it. An hour later he's beautifully lit the space. He's great at collaborating to find shots and looks for each project, and comes up with good ideas even in the dullest of spaces. When time is short, I trust him to film cutaways while I brief the interviewee, knowing he'll 'build' the story by shooting a series of shots that cut together easily. Would recommend him for any job.

    **contact removed** **contact removed** Gordon is a gem - the perfect combination of skill and professionalism. I have never worked with a cameraman more skilled than he - and I have worked with an awful lot of cameramen in the last 25 years! We have from the outset presented him with a host of challenges, from cramped settings to noisy venues and unpredictable lighting - he takes it all in his stride, looks pensive for about 5 seconds then works his magic and gives us the perfect shot. Here is a man who can really make a silk purse out of a sow's ear. He is also a remarkable one man band, providing an end to end service including lighting, camera, sound and editing. The quality of the resulting production is second to none - frankly remarkable. We've already booked his next slot

    Gordon is a hugely experienced and talented lighting and cameraman that I've worked with on many occasions. He's incredibly versatile. Able to use his lighting skills to bring class to any situation and capture the moment at busy events with beautiful shots. I couldn't recommend him highly enough!

    Lewis Darby, Producer, YardB studios, **contact removed**

    Gordon has shot a number of jobs for us often in difficult situations where he has had to work alone without direction from us on site. He is very motivated and extremely good at working with the clients to get the very best from them and their locations. I would certainly recommend him as the shots always look good ...and that's what its all about!

    Richard Mansell, Producer, JB Communications

    Worked with Gordon numerous times. He has a great eye and produces extremely reliable work. Always carries himself in a professional manner and is a joy to have around.
