Professional Camera Operator and Media Producer

"We commissioned Lightning Strike Productions to produce drone aerial shots of the resort for our website and promo materials. The photos are beautiful and show the grounds and facilities wonderfully. I would thoroughly recommend Lightning Strike’s services to anyone wanting a quality professional imaging service. Many thanks."
Yumie Morishita, Sales & Marketing Manager, Palau Pacific Resort
"Richard was a great help when we were filming our Energizer commercial for the US. His knowledge of the local waters, flexibility and good humour were key to the success of our shoot. This becomes all the more remarkable when you consider the inevitable changes of plan that are forced on you by weather, the sea and most importantly, the marine life that we were there to capture."
Ben Roberts, Producer, Interrogate Agency. October 2010
