The founder of Liveshots, known socially as ‘Del’, has had decades of experience in photography and photo editing since shooting and developing photos in the college darkroom's chemical trays back in 1994-96, and over 20 years of Photoshop since cameras turned digital. Late 2017, a big shift has been taken into video productions with multiple Ultra HD (4k) cameras, plus professional microphones and Tascam recording systems when sound quality is a priority. Video is edited with Adobe Premiere Pro, audio in Logic Pro, Adobe Audition or Sony Vegas and Sound Forge, with Waves VST plugins for fine sound treatment.
This is the regular equipment available for every shoot. Many more lights and various extras like extra cameras, drone camera, additional audio equipment and green-screens are available from the other crew members depending on your needs and budget.
Del’s prime interest has been in action photography and video; live music and special events, capturing the action without artificial poses. Wayne and Darek have joined the crew as creative directors for work such as choreographed music videos to apply to your studio recordings. Paul has a great history in wedding photography and can assist with the secondary video camera for your wedding filming.
The crew is expanding due to good reputation, adding more manned-motion to the on-scene camera work and sound engineers on-call for both recording and post-production purposes. The Liveshots audio/video crew are all sub-contracted and always tailored to your needs, therefore costs are highly flexible based on your customised crew. If you want to keep to a low budget in a small venue, Del has the skill set and equipment to do this alone. To be confident that live videos are more appealing to the eye, an extra camera operator and/or sound engineer will be usually be contracted for jobs involving any more than 2 video cameras and a room microphone.
