Director of Photography. (Although I can do all the add ons that come with the film industry, fly drone, AC, edit etc I have a strong belief in hiring the best people to do those areas. I have a singular focus on my Director of Photography work).
My name is David Recordon, I have operated as RECORDON_DP for the last 6 years after coming back to NZ from overseas where I worked for a decade in advertising. I am a Commercial Cinematographer. I have worked on ads for, Bundaberg, Mazda, Mitre10, Fonterra, Zespri as well as many local brands around the BOP region. I have an extensive cinema grade kit with lighting and lenses to suit. My website showcases reels and client work. https://www.recordon.nz
Over 20 years experience in the advertising world as a commercial grade photographer switching to commercial film in 2017. Fairly new to the cinema world I picked up a camera again after years of editing in agencies and never looked back. Working with seasoned directors, producers and agencies has helped me get onto commercial grade sets that otherwise would have taken years. I count myself very fortunate to have had those early experiences. I belong to the New Zealand Cinematographers Society (NZCS) and last year had 2 ads up for nominations.
