Since Artisan Films and Artisan Cameras were founded ten years
ago we have shot in various locations

From a park in London shooting a music video to St Paul's Cathedral Crypt for Absolute Radio and the band Elbow, shooting the first ever gig at the venue
and from Cornwall to Cyprus and Austria to Qatar.
Artisan Cameras is based on the belief that the needs
of our customers are of the utmost importance and
our entire team is committed to meeting those needs.
As a result, a high percentage of our business
is from repeat customers and referrals.
