Testimonials

“We had an incredible week at St. Andrews and both Scott and I said that you were perhaps the best cameraman we’ve ever worked with.  Your skill level, efficiency, speed, artistry and most of all your attitude completely set you apart.  It was a pleasure to be on your team and I really hope we can come together again on another project”

Rich Lerner – Presenter/Reporter, The Golf Channel (US)

“Phil is the ultimate creative lighting cameraman.  Whatever the situation, the weather, the objective or the location, nothing ever phases Phil.  He always delivers above and beyond expectations.  In the last four years we have traversed the country in helicopters, filmed in boardrooms, medical operating theatres, concert halls, fabrication yards, country fields, city galleries, hotels and restaurants in lighting conditions that range from sublime to extreme – yet Phil always delivers fantastic results.  He is equally considerate with clients and film crews, putting everyone at ease.  I have no hesitation recommending Phil to any production unit”

Rob Bryce – Producer/Director, Bluestone Film

“I’ve worked with Phil at T in the Park as my SCU cameraman on several occasions and hope to do so again.  He’s creative, hard-working, and a dab hand at getting lots of great material from what can seem slim pickings when up against time and other factors.  He works with you as a director to get the most of what can be some really pressurised shooting situations, always thinking of solutions and offering honesty on how to achieve what you set out to capture – or giving you an alternative option.  And on top of all that, he is a pleasure to work with: good humoured, calm and relaxed when up against it, nothing is too much trouble.  And he didn’t even have to pay me to write these things about him – I genuinely mean them!”

Ewan Torrance – Director, BBC, T in the Park

“We’ve just finished part 1 of the Mountain Rescue Edit and want to say thank you again for the fantastic work you did on it…it’s been a really good edit because of your brilliant shots”

Jim Webster – Producer/Director, Solus Productions

“Phil is a reliable freelance cameraman who has worked for BBC News on many occasions over the last 10 years.  He works well on his own and as part of a team, and delivers high quality content, working under pressure and against tight deadlines.”

Rob Flett – News Editor, BBC Scotland

“I have worked with Phil on a number of shoots over the last couple of years – from 5 minute features to hour-long documentaries and have always been impressed with his work.  He gives a creativity and a pro-active involvement which is always helpful but he never crosses the line and tries to take over.  Phil is enthusiastic, professional and extremely easy to work with…the work always gets done with a few laughs along the way!”

Eilidh MacDonald – Director, Mac TV

“Thanks loads for your hard work the other day.  I’ve just finished editing the piece, and was delighted with all the camerawork.  You made Edinburgh in January look like a nice place to go. Great to work with you Phil, you’ll be top of my list when we’re back in Edinburgh!”

Keith Wallace – Producer, ‘Fast:track’, BBC World
