ABOUT

Neil 2024 SuitNJM.jpg

Behind the cameras:

Hi, I’m Neil James Garrod of Neil James Media and I am a Thetford based Videographer & Photographer, a hybrid-shooter and ‘contentpreneur’.

I love what I do and hope that shines through in my work. From family portraits, weddings and promotions – I specialise in capturing the moment, enabling you to cherish them forever, even helping you get your promotion off the ground or maximising your business potential.

Using professional cameras, pro-audio recorders and drones, I’m able to cover all angles.  Most of the time I work alone, but I do have a trusted team to call upon when needed. With colour accurate monitors and editing with the full Adobe suite, I can ensure your finished video & photos are beautifully presented and professional – to your taste.

I love a challenge, working with new ideas and have vast experience in eclectic collaborations. I’m passionate about making sure that customers are happy with their finished product and will always go the extra mile to achieve that.

I have commercial PLI for using ground equipment & drones, and I have a DBS certificate.

​Thanks for reading and any help, questions or a quote needed please do get in touch, Neil

What’s new for 2024?

The CUBE Photoshoots - This service allows you to capture a variety of poses in a CUBE booth and I will piece together the best 9 photos to create a larger square image that will be perfect for making your own canvas, cards, gifts, or to decorate your home.

Camera & Drone Help: The one-to-one hour-long session will get you started with everything you need to know about your camera or drone camera settings. Or just ask me on what you'd like to focus on (pun intended)!

FPV Drone – This now opens up more dynamic drone flying experience including ‘closer over, chasing & through buildings’. With a digital cinewhoop FPV the drone videos will be more engaging and perfect for eye-catching social media videos.
