Photographer Newcastle Upon Tyne Mini update from Gavin Forster – Media Borne Newcastle Upon Tyne Video production
Yes, maybe my wedding photography blogging has been a bit quiet and with some website issues some of the recent ones have disappeared but you will be happy to hear I am super busy and shooting some epic weddings all over the …North? From local Newcastle weddings to the stunning ones in West Yorkshire, it’s been a great year so far.
Here are some images from recent weddings
As many of you know I have been a full-time professional photographer for a good few years now and mixed both weddings and commercial photography, I have always enjoyed both elements as they give me the chance to use my creative skills in different ways.
I love weddings and can’t wait to hear about your plans for your special day, don’t think this blog is me announcing I’m not doing weddings anymore! Far from it. But there has been a little change.
In February my business partner and I launched Mediaborne.co.uk, a one-stop shop for creative content. Bringing together my expertise as a photographer Newcastle Upon Tyne and Chris’ expert skills in video, drone and timelapse we can offer so much more to clients together.
Here is a bit of background on the company and if you happen to need any of these skills for your business, just get in touch!
Media Borne prides itself on bringing a range of skills and expertise to all projects. Having excelled with a range of companies both locally (Port of Blyth), nationally (National Trust, BBC & Buzzfeed) and internationally (ENEL & Accenture) we have a strong history of satisfied customers. Both of our directors (Gavin Forster & Chris Thompson) brings a wealth of skills from their previous businesses: Our Director of Photography, Gavin, is an award-winning photographer, having won various photography awards and was recently the FSB regional Micro Business of the year winner 2018. With 8 years of professional experience, he has worked alongside some of the best photographers in Yorkshire and the North East, gaining a wealth of skills to complement his own unique style. Chris, our Director of Videography, is a professional videographer and CAA fully qualified drone pilot with 5 years experience flying a range of professional drones. He has significant experience in delivering high-quality corporate videos for growth industries in the North East, for example within the Energy and Logistics sector for staff inductions and project progression.
Media Borne blends this wealth of expertise, allowing us to remain at the cutting edge of content creation. Our unique style of videography allows us to capture relaxed, natural sequences that show a true reflection of the staff, environments and processes. Our meticulous delivery and uniquely cinematic approach to creating video content, utilising storyboards to ‘tell the story’ rather than simply documenting events, allows us to deliver contextual videos that are more engaging and delivers results for clients. Over the last few years, drone filming has become much more popular – with simple flyovers now becoming increasingly mainstream content – however, we pride ourselves on creating drone timelapse and hyper-lapses, continuing to push the creative boundaries to achieve an innovative feel to make projects ‘stand out from the crowd’. Media Borne’s extensive range of specialist equipment enables us to bring a new perspective to time-lapses. Traditionally time-lapses are a static technique, capturing the passage of time from a fixed point. However, we have brought this forward with our cutting-edge gimbals and slider rigs allowing us to capture this passage of time whilst slowly panning across a scene. These innovative and creative productions add a new dimension, showcasing places and vistas in a unique way that is naturally more engaging for the audience.
