As well as stills photography, Gareth offers creative video production and dynamic time lapse footage from across Ireland.
Past work includes the shooting and delivery of promotional videos, collaborations with larger media companies, and the supply of supplementary footage for the TV documentaries Secrets of the Irish Landscape (RTE), 4000 Year Old Cold Case: The Body in the Bog (BBC/PBS) and Ireland's Treasures Uncovered (BBC).
Whether you're looking for a video-short for your website, or commissioning supplementary footage to enhance a larger film project, Gareth's vibrant and engaging video work will provide that extra creative edge.
In 2016 Gareth compiled a promotional video for Mayo.ie, with a brief to highlight the outdoor tourism opportunities within the county. Gareth selected a variety of footage featuring dynamic landscapes and adventure pursuits such as kayaking, surfing and hillwalking. The finished video is used on their website and displayed at international trade events.
This compilation of stock footage and time lapse photography appeared in the 2015 television documentary Secrets of the Irish Landscape. The series was produced by RTE, the Irish state broadcaster, and went out in three hour-long, prime time programmes. Gareth's footage featured prominently in the trailers and opening sequences for the shows.
In 2011, Tourism Ireland asked Gareth to produce a character exposé highlighting the work of Irish sea-kayaking guide Ali Donald. The piece was included in their main market brochure as part of a feature on outdoor activities in Ireland. This video production accompanied the printed article and gave a more in-depth portrayal of sea kayaking in Ireland.
Gareth is a keen surfer, and this video feature was just for fun. It was shot at Mullaghmore Head, one of Ireland's most notorious big-wave spots, on 11th and 12th December 2011. On both days, a massive Atlantic swell was producing wave faces up to 25m high. There were some epic waves ridden, but several heart-stopping rescues too. Fortunately no major injuries occurred.
