Mark Thompson | Director of Photography

I have over twenty years experience of broadcast television in the UK, Europe, USA and Africa. I shoot features, current affairs, entertainment and factual programmes and documentaries to the highest professional broadcast standard.


With a keen eye for creative shots, I bring energy and enthusiasm to any shoot which ensures the output is well-crafted and the working day is enjoyable.

“Mark is a hard-working creative DOP; professional to the core. He is conscientious, thoughtful and diligent, and adds something special to every shoot he goes on. With a ‘can do’ positive attitude, Mark makes every shoot you work with him on a pleasure.


He has a soft, calm manner; so if it’s handling the high expectations of clients, or commissioners, or the demands of headstrong talent, he does it with graciousness and a positive attitude.


I can't recommend him highly enough."
