Mike Page | Freelance Cameraman

Everything I do is centred around the creation of great video content. Whether I’m working as a video producer, or as a freelance cameraman on a documentary shoot, or ENG assignment, I am passionate about telling stories with moving images that make people stop and think, change their opinion, or alter their perceptions.

My 16 years of experience includes; filming numerous interviews with businesses leaders and high-profile politicians, corporate video productions, ENG, documentary, and live event coverage.

I use broadcast quality equipment (see equipment list below) and can sometimes accept urgent video filming assignments anywhere across the South East and beyond (Filming assignments have taken me to Canada, USA, France and the Canary Islands.)

If you need a competent and dependable lighting cameraman, call me. I’m always ready to negotiate a mutually agreeable price, in return for a job well executed with great results.
