Professional Sound Recordist / Videographer / VR-ist

Email me:

Hi! I’m a professional sound recordist working on a variety of feature films and many other projects this year. With a Sound Devices 552 mixer, 8-track recorders, Sanken CS-3e, a dozen wireless kits, and more. Am Auckland based, but I regularly travels across NZ on work.

I’m also a videographer (own a Sony PMW-F3 & BMPCC) who loves camera gear tech and crafting light to make your next film be awesome. I come equipped and ready to take on whatever your project is! Be it events, short films, weddings, corporate videos or even something more unusually out of the box… want to shoot an engagement session with medium format film? Or want a 360 degree virtual reality video? Can do! Get in touch.

A small random assortment of videos I’ve been the cameraman on:

“You are one of the most intense camera professionals I have seen in my career as an actor. I love the unending energy you have to give the best… even if it’s just a 2 second shot. Love your passion and it shows in the end product. Keep up the good work mate.” ~ Raj Singh (Actor)

“There are few men in history as prepared as you now are for low light shooting!” ~ Dion Paz (Director)

“David was utterly thorough in his preparations as DoP for my short film Breathe. He knew my shot list by heart and without any doubt he absolutely knows his stuff, and I felt very fortunate to have a DoP who was very generous in sharing this knowledge.” ~ Kirsty Hamilton (Director)
