Event Video Production

The talented people at Curious Minds hired me to cover their event at Lancaster University.

A big thanks to Becki from Events Northern event management for (once again) recommending me for video duties 🙂

Promotional Web Video for Business

Whitehead & Howarth from RT Productions on Vimeo.

Whitehead & Howarth Accountants hired me to produce a short promotional video for their website and social media pages, it was a very short shoot at their offices in St Annes and we also had the chance to use some old cine film from when the original owners worked in the same office.

Headshot Photography

Ruth Moran Consulting Agency asked me to produce a set of team head shots for their website and social media pages, the only request “Can we make them all Black & White”, not a problem…..

The only slight problem was the amount of room we had to shoot in, the pictures were taken in a cloakroom which wasn’t ideal but this is quite common when shooting at a client’s office.

Family Portraits

Here are a couple of examples from recent family portrait sessions.

Roland (RTP Films)

August 2015 (a bit of this and a bit of that)

As my bloodshot eyes are busy editing weddings during the silly summer season, i thought i would take a quick break for a few updates on what has been happening in  the world of RTP 🙂

In July, i turned the grand old age of 40 (i have been told it is the new 30) and here are a few images from the photobooth i set up at my Birthday Bash.



Last month i updated my kit-bag with a brand spanking new camera, after much research and countless hours debating what camera would be best for my needs i decided on the Canon C100 MKii and after taking it out on its first shoot (video below) i can honestly say that i made the right choice 🙂


Here is the my latest VideoBlog which i send out to future Brides who have booked me for their weddings.

Previous episodes are available here


After working with Robin at Dancefloor Couture recently, he asked if i could put together a quick promo using footage i have filmed at their weddings and here it is…


Once again i have been working with the guys at Forbo & Wrennalls to produce a series of videos explaining the approved cleaning methods for their floorings (here is one example below)

Here are a few behind the scenes images from our last shoot


I have also been working with Quantum recently after being recommended by Forbo and together we are currently creating a series of  instructional videos for their website, here is an example….

As of writing this blog i have 5 weddings which have been filmed and ready for editing and a lot more to film before the end of the year. I have just filmed the first half of a Grand Design style project, various Headshot projects, Event & Promotional videos which i will hopefully share at a later date 🙂

Catherine & Jason: Wedding Photography at The leyland Hotel, Lancashire.

At Last, a wedding were I did not need to use The Sat-Nag to find my way 🙂

The weather was just about on our side for the group photos and i gotta say Jason was a natural when it came to the shots, i just pointed the camera and from no where, ‘Catalogue Pose’!


It was the details which really made this wedding for me (some you will have seen in the video) smokey drinks?, skull & crossbones and the personalised desserts which The Leyland Hotel prepared.


Now i have to mention the dance floor…. Break Dancing, Dirty Dancing (the lift move), Austin Powers, they did it all and very funny it was 🙂


A great wedding and a fun day to shoot!

80’s Disco: Katy Holmes Trust

I popped along to the 80’s disco last night to capture some of the fun and raise a bit of money for the Katy Holmes Trust.


You can find the link to download your photos here.

The props case proved as popular as ever at these sort of events, it’s quite funny to see grown men waving lightsabres around whilst wearing pink wigs…

Or even a hybrid YMCA-Frankie creation!


Purple Pig provided the catering and we both had the pleasure of judging the best fancy dress, Adam Ant and Beetlejuice if you were wondering.


2A really fun night for a great cause 🙂

Thanks for reading, RTP.

Lancashire Event Videography

South Ribble Partnerships held their first ‘Big Do’ networking event last month. I had a nice little booth set up were I was to record business owners selling themselves which would be projected onto the big screen during the evening but due to the fact we had a few (very talented) music artists on that day, we were quickly drowned out, so we made a decision to do a bit of event filming and use it as a promotional tool for all involved.

Whenever I record people directly in front of the camera it always amazes me how they go from a ‘bag of nerves’ to ‘Anchorman’ as soon as the record button is pressed.
Guest speakers for the event were Fettle Pr & DigiEnable.
A bit of a surprise for myself was to be nominated for an award which was eventually won by someone much more worthy to be honest.

Leyland Promotional Photography

APC Overnight who have been a big part of this year’s Leyland Festival asked me to pop down to take a few photos for local publications, I would hesitate to call this work as it turned into a laugh riot for everyone behind the camera at the expense of the poor (Willing) guys they dressed up that day.

Here is one of the photos which appeared in the Leyland Guardian.

Photo Booth

Finally, I attended Balshaws High School Spring Fayre and set up a little photo booth were the kids could dress up and have their photos taken…

This weekend it is Leyland Festival and I’ll be around town all day recording all the fun which I will share in the usual places when completed. If you see me about then please come and say hello and get yourself in the film…

BTW i can’t go without mentioning that my wifes company Purple Pig Catering will be on the festival serving these gems 🙂


Just a little update…

January to March is usually the catch up season for me which means a lot more hours at the desk editing, chasing up, advertising for next year etc….

But i thought i send out a quick post with recent developments….

obviously it has been Mothers Day (in the U.K) so we managed to create a few great gift ideas for those wanting to treat their Mums 🙂

South Ribble Borough Council have commissioned me for a few filming projects this year including Leyland Festival, Leyland Live and some which i cannot mention at the moment (cloak & dagger) but i will be blogging the final films on here in due course, so please stay tuned.
