Videographers record various events. These events might include interviews, conferences, or weddings.

Typically, they work as a one-person show and handle all lighting, editing, and arrangement themselves. They work hard to capture candid moments as they unfold because they rarely have a chance for retakes.

What makes your style unique?

I feel like my particular style is an amalgamation of corporate video that I have be moulded into using over the years as well as trying out different things from influencers on YouTube. It's an evolutionary process and it really is a case of trying things out and seeing what works and what doesn't, some things stick and others fade away.  

How did you get started with videography?  

It is a question that does pop up from time to time when people are interested in how I did a 180 on my career – working as a Technical Product Engineer in SKY TV to currently a freelance filmmaker/animator through KaiCreative, my own company. I also work as the Head of Video production for an international company in the higher education sector.
So I didn’t go to film school. I don’t even have a creative A-Level I wanted to study an A level in media at college, and my very traditional parents, didn’t see it as a benefit they said, what are you going to do with media? And they encouraged me to do technical subjects, so of course, I studied A level maths, ICT, electronic engineering and instead of choosing Media, I ended up choosing History, European political History.

After college, I went to university, and I studied Electronic Engineering for three years, got a 2.1, not bad, thanks to one of my friends at Uni I got a job working at SKY TV, at their head office in Southwest London and if you don’t know Sky it is one of the biggest broadcasting and telecommunication companies in the UK.

I started as a Hardware test engineer working on the latest sky products, very quickly got promoted to Senior Test lead where I was training newbies on how to use frequency generators, oscilloscopes, lots of technical kits, and soon after that I got promoted again to a Technical Product Engineer role, and I owned the third party relationships of companies that made the products for the sky, so I would liaise with companies like Sony, Samsung, Pace, Thomson and Amstrad, I would arrange code to be built, arranged hardware and software test cycles. And I was slowly making my way up the corporate ladder – the next role I focused on was to become a project manager and I had that career path laid out for me.

And to be honest, life was good at Sky, I got free sky tv, I had a test card so I could watch all the movies I wanted, free sport, free internet, free phone, automatic shares in the company, an amazing health package, they had a minivan that picked you up from the station and took you to the office, almost free gym, (about £5 a month) Tuesday football, and also sky throws massive summer and amazing winter parties the canteen was amazing – I think it was voted the best work canteen in the UK at one point. One summer they took one of the car parks and turned it into an artificial beach, with tonnes of sand, with palm trees and deck chairs and beach games, and they set up a costa stand which gave away free iced coffee and ice cream. It was a pretty awesome place to work.

In terms of creative I was messing around with after effects at home – trying to learn how to create fireballs, and clone videos, lightsaber fight scenes – and I always tried to edit holiday videos in interesting ways. I was doing A lot of tricking and gymnastics and filmed a lot of that stuff on my SD camcorder. I was editing in Windows movie maker so, it was all pretty rubbish – but I had a passion for trying to make something creative with video, but it was never a serious thing.

So life was good, things were going well, until one day, the whole team was called into a meeting room, and our newly appointed manager was sitting there with a representative from HR. And they told the whole team that we were at risk of redundancy.

On the train journey home that day, I wrote a note on my phone entitled: I’ve lost my job contingency plan, and I made a list of all the skills I had that I could use to get another job. And I panicked at that point – because I realised that I had come straight out of Uni and worked in a very specialised role in satellite technology for the last few years and I had pigeonholed myself into a dead-end job, particularly as more companies were focusing on optical fibre, there weren’t too many opportunities out there for what I had found myself doing the last three years. And the only other thing I could think of as an alternative was this crazy idea that maybe I could do something in the video. Bear in mind at this time YouTube was about 5 or 6 years old - and the most coveted camera on the market was the Canon 5D Mark II. So the array of cameras and amazing functionality we have today to create video simply didn’t exist and YouTube was still very much a place that people saw as a platform to upload funny videos and not what it has grown into today.
But I think the real dream of doing something with video started from around that point.

So within a month, 70% of my team was gone, I was one of the “lucky” ones who was kept on to cover the workload, and my title was changed to something random, and all of a sudden this amazing job and career path didn’t exist anymore, and things were quite miserable, and the rose-tinted glasses had come off. I slogged it out for about 2 years.

Now during this time, in one of my appraisals my boss - boss, wanted to have a quick chat with me about my career path and what direction I wanted to go in. Do I want to be more technical or project focussed, getting me back on that ladder that I so aspired to be on before. And to try and be friendly he asked me what hobbies I was doing, and I decided to show him a little After Effects showreel that I had been working on and he was impressed and he said to me You should do this, how would you feel about working in the Creative department where they shoot the news and make all the adverts and play around with after effects, so I said yeah sure, sounds awesome and he arranged a secondment and I had the opportunity to work over in that department for a little while. And at that point, I decided I would start doing something creative. I didn’t know what it would be, but it would be creative.

After the secondment was over, things went back to normal and I decided to quit and travel to China with my wife. We lived, studied and worked there for about a year, and that’s one of the most incredible experiences I’ve had so far, just breaking away from that 9-5 grind and refocusing and re-assessing, and living in a completely different environment, really helped put lots things into perspective.

Now, Before I left to go to China, I bought myself a little vlogging camera, the Canon IXUS 220 HS, and spent a lot of the time making little videos about our time there. And that helped me to learn more about things like vlogging, composition and editing, and I’ll probably talk a bit more about those experiences another time.

When I got back from China, I didn’t know what to do for work. I’d had this amazing adventure I had been teaching English, which wasn’t my thing. And now I was back in the UK, we were living with my mum and dad, and I thought: What now? I need to get a job.

And soon after that I got a text from one of my old colleges at Sky, they found out that I was back from China, and funnily enough, he was one of the guys that I had trained years before had now had become a test manager and they were looking for a new test engineer, and since I was the one who wrote the book on testing that they were currently using, they contacted me to see if I wanted a position back in the Sky Test Team.
So I texted him back very quickly saying that I was extremely interested and he asked when I could come in for an interview, so we arranged a day and he told me the interview was a formality and that I was guaranteed the position.

So I was quite happy to have that, and later that day I spoke to my wife and told her the good news and she said: What are you doing? You hated that job, it made you miserable and you want to go back there?
And I had to admit that she was right. But I was like: what am I going to do?

And she said: why don’t you do the video thing.
So I thought about it and said “ok” and from then I started to try and make videos. At that time I had a few hundred pounds in my bank account and I used that money to purchase a second hand Canon 550D with a kit lens and a second hand Sigma 10-20mm wide-angle lens from eBay.
And then I started actively looking for work online and one place that I looked for jobs was a website called PeoplePerHour, which is a freelancing website where people put up jobs and you pitch your hourly rate and they choose who they want for the job, and I started trying to get clients and work through that website.

Since I knew a little bit of After Effects I made something called an “hourly” which was doing a job for a set amount of money and one of my hourlies was to edit after effects templates and also create 3D animated Logos, and to be honest the money was terrible and most of the clients were demanding. And the platform also took a large percentage of your earnings so it was just an opportunity to build a portfolio.

We also attacked the Wedding scene, my wife was working again with her old company and she put some money behind some wedding fairs, and previous to this I had done a few weddings for family and friends, again to build up a portfolio, and we went to these wedding fairs to pitch our wedding videography business, and to be honest the quality of my wedding videos at that point was terrible. But we put a big “50% off” sticker on the table and we managed to get a few bookings, which was great, but most of those were several months or even a year, plus, into the future. So having that on the calendar several months in advance was quite challenging, again not much money coming in.
And I remember feeling at the time that this video thing simply wasn’t working. I had put a lot of effort and energy into it and I wasn’t seeing immediate results, but I persisted I continued trying to get clients on the PeoplePerHour platform and slowly started to build a credit rating. We continued to do wedding fairs and also slowly got more weddings. So I had a corporate portfolio and a wedding portfolio.

And what’s interesting, and I think this is the key, is that when you start building something, other people will start to notice and sooner or later, the right person will notice as long as you don’t give up. And this is exactly what happened to me, about a year in, I got an email out of the blue from a small production company in Shoreditch that needed a freelancer to come in and work on the backlog of videos they had for one of their clients. I got on the phone with them we had a quick chat, agreed on an hourly rate and three days a week for the next year I was freelancing with this small business and worked on building up my other stuff at the same time.
And now I was in an environment where I was earning some money and also able to learn from other creatives, and I think that is the second key, being in an environment that supports what you want to do. Surrounding yourself with people that you can learn from.

Since then I’ve worked with several other companies, I’ve freelanced with some big companies in the UK too and like I said at the beginning I’m working hard at building up the Kai Creative brand as well as working as the Head of video production for another company.

And in that time I feel that, while I’ve improved, I still have a long way to go and I think that is the third key, to be eager to learn and develop your Skill Sets, never be content with where you are on the creative spectrum and also learn new skills, if you can monetize new skill sets then you can multiply your revenue streams.

So that’s the story behind how I did a 180 on my career as a Technical engineer to a freelance creative, and I couldn’t have made it without the love and support of my family and friends who have propped me up along this journey, so a massive thank you to them.

One piece of advice I will give you is that it’s not necessarily going to be an easy ride but it is worth doing something that you enjoy doing.

How did you get started with videography?  

It started as a completely normal hobby in the teenage years. I was doing photography at the time. Once I got my hands on my first camcorder, which was a Panasonic camcorder recording video on mini dv cassettes in early 2006, I began my journey as a videographer. After some time, I connected with other video enthusiasts and we had first paid projects in Lithuania, which were predominantly weddings and family events. After that I relocated to Brighton, UK in 2011. Applied to Brighton University studying TV production and Broadcast Media. That's the time I began my freelance career in the UK, which I am doing up to this day.

What makes your style unique?  

"I love performance. For me, the performance comes at the centre of my work, and my role as a videographer is to best capture and present that performance, whether it be an actor, a musician, or simply someone incredibly passionate. The lighting and the camera work are always inspired by the people I work with, and I try to inject their individuality into the shooting style. It's what makes no two pieces of work identical.  That's what I aimed to capture in my showreel (if you check it out), the moments of interaction and performance which made the shoot exciting for me."

How did you get started with videography?  

"I was fortunate to have access to cameras from a young age. I feel the biggest entry point for anything is access. My dad was a musician and had access to cameras to film his performances; at a young age, he recognised my passion for filmmaking and gave me the tools to experiment. From there, I've always followed what I was passionate about filming at the time and focused on developing my style and helping clients visualise what is in their head. For me, that's the really fun part."

Stefano's focus on branded content means that he's always working toward realizing a brand's vision.

What makes your style unique?

"I really love just turning up to a shoot with a blank canvas to work with. Pre-planning and knowing what the end goal of the video is of course important, but just being able to really shoot anything that's in front of you on the day is really creatively freeing.Shooting in natural light is also fun, especially when you find that sweet spot with sunlight to really bring out the beauty of some shots."

How did you get started with videography?

"Originally my background was in the film industry. After a few years I found I wasn't going in the right direction. Then about 7 years ago, one of my best friends just suggested we both use our skills to make a living. So I started very small, filming at nightclubs for £50 and taking on anything that was offered to me. Even if it was for free. Just building my network and connections and practicing and retraining my skills to be better at video content creation."

21. James Cook

James Cook, the founder behind FOSTER studios, helps companies develop their brand through video production and photography. He has worked with companies like Hamleys and Fever-Tree, and his manifesto is to provide a brilliant content marketing service to any company.

What makes your style unique?  

"My style is still developing, it is not definite. The best word to describe it would be unconventional. I've worked with videographers and camera operators that are rigorous in a way they work, others with more the run&gun approach, not really thinking about the lighting.

James used to be the same, quick on his feet, usually going with the flow as they say. Many times he shot without lighting, getting the best of the situation. Now it's changing – making sure enough time is spent to set up whatever's necessary, and make it look really, really good!

How did you get started with videography?

When I was 16 I wanted to get into the YouTube game. I studied film studies college too. However, as I got older I wanted to get behind the camera rather than being in front of it.

When at university, James studied film & TV, worked a job in media as well as exploring being a freelance videographer. All that led him to setting up his own FOSTER Studios video production company where he's working locally with marketing agencies and businesses of all sizes.

Having my own business was and still is a great learning curve for me. To be able to mix and learn the business side of it besides making just a video, it really is an amazing advantage. Working with other freelancers gives me the opporutinity to blend different styles and talents of different people.

On top of all that, James see many more advantages on having his own video production company. He is able to constantly meet new people and businesses.

Cameron Hall is a cinematographer and video editor based in London. Cameron founded CH Filmmaking in 2018 with the mission of utilising an unmatched passion for filmmaking as the tool to take you from where you are with your brand or business, to where you desire to be.

Till now, he produced work featuring brands as GQ Magazine, Bossa Studios, Soccer Bible and Adidas, The Face Magazine, Rolls-Royce, Gymshark, Instagram X Selfridges and many more.

What makes your style unique?

"In a few words, I feel what makes my style unique is that it seems to carry energy. The production, post production, pacing, it all has a sense of weight. The style doesn't drop the ball long enough for you to catch yourself, and as a viewer you experience the video or the content, not just watch it. I'm in the process of niching the company towards sports and fitness with sport docs, promos and so on, as my style definitely fits that niche perfectly."

How did you get started with videography?

"I was always very passionate about films growing up, I used to have a schedule of watching a movie every night at 10pm. I wasn't sure what interested me about them but I knew that whatever I ended up doing in the future I wanted to work in the film industry. Which actually was strange at the time as I was very active growing up, I played football for years, then snowboarding, skateboarding and travelling to different countries for skate competitions. One day I started creating YouTube videos when I was  15, making video game walkthroughs and reviewing comic books with a voiceover, with no camera. Then I took the leap, bought my first camera, Canon 70D, with a kit lens and started putting myself on-camera (I remember being so scared of that). Eventually I grew the YouTube channel to 80K subscribers, had consistent views, giveaways and partnered with brands like Sony, Loot Crate and more whilst at the same time studying for a degree in Post Production for Film & TV at University called 'Futureworks' in Manchester.
After graduating from the University I saved money for one year, and in June 2018 left everything and everyone behind to relocate to London with no plan besides needing to find a job within three months. Otherwise I would run out of money and have to go back to Manchester. I worked for free for as long as possible and as much as possible within those three months of being in London. Instead of landing a job, I landed an ongoing client – freelancing, and that right there was the beginning of my professional career. Now a few years later I'm working on larger productions, own cinema cameras, manage my own team (should the project and budget need it) and consistently work with amazing clients. One of my main clients being GQ who I'm very proud of."

25. Sam Gillespie

Sam Gillespie is a freelance filmmaker working directly with companies of all sizes as well as a drone operator and camera/mōvi operator working with commercial video productions.

Sam’s marketing experience shines through all his work: he loves to help clients grow their brands, sell their products and services and reach their objectives in authentic ways. Sam’s client list includes Vodafone, Red Bull and Danone. Based in the South West, Sam works in Bath, Bristol, Cheltenham and London.

How did you get started in the industry?

I made the jump to freelance in 2017, having initially run a small photography business during my free time whilst working full time in the consumer goods industry. My partner and I took a year out to go travelling when she finished med school and I started off shooting, and editing personal travel films shot on a GoPro. That got me hooked and it snowballed from there! When we returned, I decided to pursue filmmaking full time and haven’t looked back since.

What separates you from other filmmakers?

I believe my industry experience working in the consumer goods industry (where I had various different roles across brand marketing and sales) really helps me to better understand clients’ commercial or marketing objectives. This comes from me having first hand experience working on brand marketing campaigns (PR, ATL, OOH, Social) and having sat on the other side of the same discussions I now have running my video production company. Being able to talk the client’s language and understand their strategy and objectives really helps ensure that the video assets created for my clients helps towards that strategy.
