I have a high proficiency in many aspects of media production particularly video production. I currently freelance as a video producer and working part-time, 4 hours a week for a new UK energy company owned by ESB Ireland.
I have been in the media industry on and off since 2002 when I worked for BBC South as a camera assistant. Shortly after this I completed a 2 year BTEC in Media at Weymouth College then a 2 year Foundation Degree in Broadcast Post Production at Ravensbourne, London.
I pride myself on producing great content that leaves a wow factor with the client and the viewer. My ability to film and edit is also very handy and both have seen video broadcast domestically and around the world.
I have also developed in other areas such as event photography and managing wordpress based websites and these are all areas that will combine well with my video production background.
July 2016 – Present
Each Monday I produce a 2-4 minute news round up video. I own my own portable green screen mini studio and film right by Southampton Central with presenters that have their own tv shows on London Live, Keep It Country and web content for Shorts TV International and many more.
My client supplies the script and I produce everything else. This is a part-time role, typically 4 hours per week.

Voice In A Million
Steve did a great job for us.
I absolutely loved the end product delivered by Steve and his creativity in producing top-notch promotional material as part of Slinky TV.
They did an excellent job, even better than I expected and it was a pleasure working with Alex and Steve at Olympia London for The IT In Housing Show.
It was a perfect video and looked very nice in ultra high definition. Thankyou.
WuWu & Retention Manager
Steve, for me, is a real artist in his own right but also someone who just gets on with the job. Many past videographers and photographers i’ve worked with have been pre-madonnas, not Steve, he gets the job done simply and efficiently.
TV Presenter (Ideal World)
Steve is extremely professional with a clear creative vision, and his enthusiasm did not falter even after 10 hours filming in Cologne for Planet Cruise. His dedication and technical skills resulted in some great VT inserts for the Amazing Cruise Show on Ideal World.
We always have lots of positive comments from the parents about the Nativity Play DVDs that Steve produces for us each Christmas. It really does save having the majority of parents trying to capture the performance themselves.
