Some recent filming projects

  • My name is Jason Kosbab. I am a DOP and have been now for nearly 20 years - I lead the shoots on all productions we do. We have a large hire company that can hire everything from a simple top light, to a fully manned 10 x man crew. We film everything from concerts, corporates, commercials, sporting events, interviews etc. It is my company and we have some really good talented people working with us, from editors, directors and producers. Below is just a few snapshots from some of our recent work

Some very recent 'Stay at Home' shoots.  All kit and 'training' was supplied by us!
