Since Artisan Films and Artisan Cameras were founded ten years

ago we have shot in various locations

for many varied clients. 

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.


We only use the very best people and equipment,

and consequently, we have built up a reputation

for excellence in the field of television

and all types of media service.

At Artisan Cameras we strive to provide the best

service possible for all our clients and would welcome

the opportunity to earn your trust and deliver the best service in the industry.


Artisan Cameras currently owns a  Super Plus Triangle Jimmy Jib with the option of going up to 40 foot in reach.

We also have a three wheel crab and dolly base with both studio and pneumatic off road wheels as well as

a four wheel crab and dolly base with studio wheels

and track wheels with thirty foot of track
