I’m Michael, a 24 year old freelance filmmaker and photographer from North East England. I have a huge passion for the art of film and the impact it can have on an audience. Combining this deep love and understanding with my passion for the outdoors and adventure I’ve been able to craft films that really resonate with the viewer in ways I could never imagine. My specialty is travel and tourism and my niche is aerial cinematography. I’m a UK CAA Approved Drone Pilot, so you know your in good hands.
Creativity has been a huge influence on my life for as long as I can remember. From a young age I've had an imagination that really shaped my childhood. I grew up as a Spielberg kid, falling in love with films such as Jurassic Park, E.T. and Indiana Jones. As I got older I began to explore the world around me a lot more. I fell in love with the vistas i saw; huge mountains and expansive landscapes with the deepest lakes. My eyes were open more than they had ever been before. I knew I had to bring these experiences to life as living memories so I started taking pictures with my phone and making short films of our adventures. This quickly led to me buying my first camera, a purchase that changed my life forever. My work has changed so much in the short time I've been creating. The introduction of drones and aerial cinematography into my workflow has completely re-invented my style.
