Video Production

Video is a powerful medium to tell stories and make connections.

With passion and attention to detail, I love to work on projects where landscape and culture meet.

Showreel

‘The Woods’ with Hamish Napier

When I met Hamish and learned he was writing an album of folk music in tribute to the woods of Strathspey, I knew immediately that it was a project I wanted to be involved in. Together we filmed a short promo film at Loch Garten, combining his moving music with footage from the forests of the Cairngorms. Hamish’s album went on to win the Album of the Year Award at the 2020 MG Alba Scots Trad Music Awards.


‘West’ – A Film Tribute to Scotland’s West Coast

‘West’ is a passion project filmed in Ardnamurchan, Moidart and Sunart. I love to capture the beauty of the landscape from above, which offers powerful ways to gain perspective and to ‘manipulate’ the landscape with the camera.


‘Waterfall’ – Scottish Nature Photography Awards 2019

‘Waterfall’ is a short piece filmed as an entry for the 2019 Scottish Nature Photography Awards. The film offers a mesmerising journey up and down the course of ‘the secret waterfall’ in the Cairngorms National Park. The video was selected for the competition shortlist.


‘The Pioneer’ – Scottish Nature Photography Awards 2020

‘Mist’ is a short piece shortlisted for the Scottish Nature Photography Awards 2020 competition. A simple but beautiful arrangement of music and motion, set to the hauntingly beautiful piece ‘The Pioneer’ by Hamish Napier.
