I am a Video guy, A Husband and a Dad

GrantGudday from way down under here in New Zealand, thats me in the picture with the floppy hat.

I live in the beautiful town of Queenstown, situated in the South Island of New Zealand where I have been a freelance cameraman for the last 20 plus years…I’m going to stop counting now.

I cut my teeth shooting news for the two main broadcasters here in New Zealand. Since then I’ve been really lucky to have worked on a diverse range of projects from television reality shows, corporate videos to chasing Crocodile Rangers around the backwaters of Darwin, Australia for the National Geographic channel.  I also got to shoot on a Bear Grylls reality TV show here in the mountains of New Zealand.

Big shows I’ve shot on include Castaway (BBC), Bear Grylls (NBC), The Biggest Loser (NBC), Grand Designs NZ, Behind the scenes shooting for feature films Lord of the Rings and The Legend of Zorro.  So that’s all the glamour job name dropping I could think of,  other jobs include weddings (in my very early days), shooting for-sale videos for Japanese Heli Skiers and a lot of snowboarding, skiing, motor-sport and most other sports you can think of.  I also shot my fair share of corporate videos for many small local businesses from around my town and area.

Chief Cameraman, editor, tester and coffee maker is me….

Real Estate PictureA large percentage of my work in recent years has been to do with Real Estate where I have been shooting as freelance cameraman for the New Zealand version of Grand Designs television series locally for the last three years.

Another large chunk of my work has been shooting Real Estate marketing videos for local Realty firms.  Its a part of my work I really enjoy and an area I like showing others how I shoot and what works for me.

One of the areas I enjoy the most about the craft is that every time I pick up a camera or sit down to edit I learn something new.
