Since an early age I’ve always had a interest in filming and photography, largely down to my Dad for turning holiday snaps into jazzy videos.
In a bid to get into the industry, I started a voluntary role at Canvey Island Football Club as their cameraman/editor and was involved in establishing their YouTube channel. This paved the way for me to get my dream job at ITN.
Five years after joining ITN as an apprentice, I’m now a fully fledged shoot/edit camera operator at ITV News London, covering a variety of stories across the capital from stabbings to show-biz premieres.
In 2018 I got my Permission for Commercial Operations (PfCO) from the Civil Aviation Authority, allowing me to use my drone commercially and continue to use it for flight training and aerial photography.
When, while the lovely valley teems with vapour around me, and the meridian sun strikes the upper surface of the impenetrable foliage of my trees.
The shoot was dealt with professionally and skilfully and the prior preparation you carried out both surprised and impressed me. The photos taken speak for themselves and look amazing.
The quality of his videos has been far beyond our expectations, and the effort and dedication he has demonstrated in filming and editing hundreds of hours worth of footage is exceptional
The video was professionally made and Joe was very considerate and unobtrusive whilst filming. The finished production was very well received by staff.
