David with drone control

David Marsh- I’m a photographer, videographer, cinematographer, and author. I began my career in England when I was 17, after I quit school early. Yes, hated school. I apprenticed at Pinewood film studios where I learned how to edit film (real film in long strips and snippets called trims).  Notable show: “The World At War.” for Thames TV - Team Emmy - editing. I wrote and directed my first feature film The Lords of Magick” entirely on digital, in the early days of CGI. Six years later, my second film ”Stormswept” (self-financed) sold worldwide. Today, I divide my professional time between writing novels and filming brides and adventurers.  

The cameras I mostly use are: Canon 5D3, R, 6D (all full frame) and a Panasonic GH4 (video  only) with a Metabones speedbooster. Favorite focal length for portraits: 85mm wide open. Drone: DJI Mavic. Underwater camera: Gopro. Audio: Sennheiser wireless mic system. Rode shotgun mic. Backup sound:  Zooom H1 and H2.  Just so you know: I’ve filmed more than 500 wedding videos.

Samuel is David’s wingman, literally.  Energetic, with a strong zeal for adventure, Samuel is rarely seen without his camera slingshot, ready to capture magic.  Sam uses Leica and sometimes Sony full frame cameras.

In 2008 we launched Kauai Video Productions.  There’s an old saying: “The proof of the pudding is in the eating.” It’s an Englishism, like grub, bangers and mash, Marmite sandwiches. You get the picture.  So take a bite out of any of our video samples / photo galleries. Or call/ e-mail, tell us about your project.
