Camera Operator, Photographer, Editor, Associate Trainer, IT Development
Richard is an ex-Royal Navy pilot officer and instructor and is our lead photographer and media specialist. He has a passion for the end result which, at the end of the day, despite all the hype and publicity with drones, is really what aerial filming & photography is all about.
Richard began work at a local TV filming company in the midlands specialising in promotional filming & film editing before joining the military. It was soon after that he began to develop his passion for photography.
Having travelled much of the globe courtesy of the Royal Navy he now finds himself back in Shropshire. The West Midlands has been an ideal place to develop the aerial filming business, due to its scenery and central location in the UK.
Camera Operator, Director of Photography, Editor
As the director of photography, Owen is focused on producing the very best out of our drones, our gyro cameras, our 3D cameras and our DSLR cameras.
Formerly a Royal Navy Officer, Pilot & Instructor, Owen is one of those annoying people who can do anything. He will pick up a golf club having never really played and proceed to thrash you even though you have been playing for years. As you can imagine, Owen is not very popular in the team but he is useful.
Incredibly arty and creative, he talks at great length about “light” and is extremely capable at getting the best out of any camera work.
In joining Skycast Media, Owen has developed his creative side further and has even managed to pretend he can’t do some things so as not to be quite so annoying. These things include, paying for anything, driving or sharing.
