Professional Info

 

I have been an independent freelance DoP/Camera Op, Key/Dolly Grip, and corporate editor since 2006. My experience has taken me all across Canada working in television, film, and a variety of sports and corporate productions.

 

I firmly believe that quality should never be sacrificed in any aspect of a production. Any and all productions should be handled with the same level of professionalism and pride regardless of the scope. With that in mind, my clients shouldn't just be happy with the final product, but should be impressed with the overall experience of the production itself.

 

Whatever the production, I am always up for a challenge and understands the need to be flexible with budgets. Whether you're looking for crew for your upcoming production, or if you're a business looking to expand your video content; feel free to contact me at Bowman Productions to get everything under way.
