Photography, Advice and Reviews

With a mass of poor images now online, often badly produced with mobile phones, high-quality images allow you stand out. Mark undertakes a number of photography assignments, supporting his online and technology-related activities. He also supports his local community and not-for-profit organisations, such as youth musical theatre group Spotlight Productions. Only the best Sony full-frame cameras and Sony GM lenses are used – capable of amazing resolution (up to 60 megapixels and beyond) and undetectable noise, even in very challenging lighting conditions.

Video Recording, Editing and Production

 
Video is becoming increasingly important to stand out online. Fed up of seeing dreadful mobile phone video footage, with awful sound? If you do what everyone else does, you’ll get average results. Mark Heath cost-effectively achieves high production values through the smart use of Ultra HD (4k) cameras with high-quality lenses, broadcast-quality lighting, professional audio equipment and microphones, and chromakey. Full-frame Sony cameras are used (including the Sony A7S III) with Sony GM lens for superb results.

The video above was produced for team building events company Creative Team Events for use on its website and social media. It was recorded in Ultra HD 4k using a Sony camera and studio lighting. Chromakey (green screen) was used to provide a suitable studio backdrop and to enable integration with various video feeds. Autocue was used to minimise stress for the presenter.
