John Tolson

I’m an ex freelance TV cameraman, with many years experience filming documentaries, life stories and corporate videos.  I have worked with David Attenborough and Robert Swan on award-winning documentaries.  That was after I learnt my craft from the master of film camera work, Charles Lagus, who discovered a young TV producer, David Attenborough, and who created the style we now take for granted.

"Filming is my passion..."

I am a versatile film maker and script writer.  I’m equally at home filming grandfathers reminiscing about their long lives, happy couples walking up the aisle, or being in the Antarctic accompanying intrepid explorers, capturing wonderful moments for documentaries.


Why not tell the story about your life, your first business, or record the preparations for your wedding day?  You will have peace of mind knowing a highly experienced cameraman and script writer will capture Your Story to remind you of those enduring special moments.
