Richard Ashdown - Director, Richer Image Ltd
I am a television cameraman and producer with more than 14 years of experience in factual, news and corporate film-making.
In the business world I work with companies and organisations in both the public and private sectors, shooting films to maximise their media exposure and facilitating the media training of their key spokespeople.
In addition to my b2b work with video clients, I continue to work as a cameraman with some of the UK's leading PR and media services companies. My ongoing broadcast work includes news and documentary production for the BBC, ITN Productions and Al Jazeera English.
If you are a broadcaster or production company, and you would like more information on my services as a lighting cameraman, you can find a CV and showreel at www.richard-ashdown.co.uk.
Richer Image keeps your costs down by staying light on its feet, only drawing from an established network of highly trusted and capable freelancers on a project by project basis. They are talented people that I work with frequently, for big broadcasters and small production companies. I NEVER crew up for a Richer Image project with untested freelancers. Every cameraman, sound recordist, editor, presenter, producer, reporter, media trainer and photographer comes with the strongest credentials.
Why choose Richer Image?
- Because we are TV people who continue to work with major broadcasters and leading production companies. The sheer variety of work that I and the people who work with me tackle every day keeps us fresh with new ideas and techniques. That's great news for your video.
- Because it's a small company, able to scale up and down for each commission. Overheads are kept down, and that huge saving will be reflected in your quote.
- Because we use the right tools for the right job. There are lots of professional camera and lighting options out there. We have experience with most of them, and we'll work with you to choose the right look at the right price. And we won't sell you a high definition video when you don't need one. For example, how many boardrooms do you know with a Blu-Ray player?
- Because we'll advise you every step of the way. Whether you know precisely what you need, or are starting from scratch, we'll collaborate with you to create fresh, vibrant video content that stands out from the competition.
- Because our services stretch beyond making your web video. For example, the footage for your Virtual Tour can be prepared in a format suitable for use by programme makers and news broadcasters. If there is media interest in your company, we can then provide them with broadcast-quality footage of your products and services. We can also train your selected spokespeople for their appearance in front of the camera.
