Experienced Sussex Lighting Cameraman Mark Snashall

Creative and experienced cameraman

Over 30 years' experience. Originally working in 16mm film production, the majority of my work nowadays is as a Lighting Cameraman on video productions and events. I have shot and lit a great many factual, educational, corporate, events and drama productions, including filming a 100-minute historical feature film, "The Twisted Tale Of Bloody Mary", on which I was Director Of Photography.

My corporate work has frequently been for major organizations such as car manufacturers, banks and computer companies (see List of Clients). They include an ITVA-award-winning programme for IBM. I have also worked on films for social and overseas development organizations such as Oxfam and VSO. I am equally happy working on small-crew hand-held camera shoots as on large-scale drama projects.

As well as lighting for factual productions, I am also experienced at lighting

for drama. As mentioned above, I shot and lit the historical feature film

"The Twisted Tale Of Bloody Mary" about the life of Queen Mary I, as well as a series of historical dramas for schools including "The Murder of Thomas Becket", "The Industrial Revolution" and "The Black Death". In addition to location lighting, I have designed the lighting for various studio productions, including drama sets and "game-show"-style productions, as well as for normal studio presentations (see Gallery).

Conferences & Events

I am experienced at event camerawork,

having filmed countless conferences and events around the world, both as live-to-screen camera operator and also filming delegates' excursions and activities for end-of-conference video presentations

of the event.

I understand the need for "open-ended" days,

and am happy to play my part in unloading,

rigging, de-rigging and the get-out.


I am experienced with many different cameras

 (see Cameras).

I am happy to work with your video production equipment or mine, or alternatively we can arrange

for the hiring of appropriate equipment for

your project, as required.


I have filmed in twenty-five countries in

Europe, Africa, Asia and America. I have a

little knowledge of French and German,

a few words of Japanese, and

five words of Swahili!
