d'nm video & photography

When I'm asked what sort of work we do, I tell people that one day I might be filming an interview in a corporate boardroom and the next I might be flying a drone over a farm in rural Queensland! We work with businesses of all size, micro to multi-nationals and we film and edit almost anything!

I'm excited by the fact that what we do is so wide and varied. It certainly keeps things interesting. I love the challenge of a new project to determine how we will approach it to deliver the best result for the client.

If you need some video or photography, I'd love to chat!

Q & A

Whats the best thing to happen to you in your career to date?

I love to travel (who doesn't right!). The best parts of my job are when we get to go to new and interesting places to shoot. I've been lucky enough to shoot in the USA, Fiji, NZ and all around Australia.

What does a typical work week look like for you?:

I love getting out to meet people, to find out how we can help them to solve their current problem. Some of my week is devoted to meeting people and building connections. Some of my week is behind the camera and some in the office, either editing or generally running the business.

Describe your working environment in a few sentences..

I can do that in one word ... varied !

What sets you apart from other freelancers in your industry?

We're smaller than most video production companies. We can do TV commercials if that's what you require, but our niche is producing video content for the web, internal communications or training etc. You'll find that we are able to offer better rates than the larger productions crews - and still get a fantastic result.

What are the tools of your trade?

Mainly Canon DSLR cameras. We can upscale if required. Of course, we also have all of the necessary support equipment; lighting, audio, gimbals, drone, etc.

Do you collaborate with others? If yes, how does that works?

Certainly. We're always happy to work collaboratively.

Whats been the biggest freelancing lesson to date?

Work hard to make sure your customers are raving fans. It's far easier to keep a happy customer than to find new ones!
