Hello. I’m Jamie, a Director of Photography with a van full of kit featuring the Arri Amira. I also enjoy working as a director & creative for commercials and branded content often self shooting.

I’ve been working in Film and TV for over 20 years and I'm experienced in all genres. I particularly love Drama Recon and Presenter Led Specialist Factual.

I'd love you to take a peek at my site when you have a moment. There, you’ll find reels, kit lists and a great gallery of production stills.

I can offer really good rates on the equipment, particularly for a series deal, as I'm independent of the rental houses. The image quality of the Arri Amira significantly improves the look of any production and is super efficient in post production.

Summer 2016, I shot my first feature film moving on to shoot my second in February 2017. With another two on the cards, I'm really looking forward to moving into the feature film sector over the next few years. It's this background in film drama that I believe has enabled me to raise the bar, visually, in any drama documentary. I get a real thrill out of making a modest budget look a million dollars.

If you think I could bring a little something to your next show or commercial, I would really love to hear from you. Please do give me a call or drop me a line, I'd love to say hello.

I worked alongside Jamie this summer on the feature film 'Name of the Game'. I was the Sound Recordist. Jamie is one of the best DOP's I have worked with. He is easy going, has an eye for detail and is extremely passionate in what he does. I would highly recommend Jamie, he has the kit and skills for any job that is thrown at him.

Paul Caton, Sound Recordist

I am very delighted to recommend Jamie Hobbis - His creative instincts, visual acuity and technical genius is both inspiring and assuring for a Director, Writer and Producer. He enabled our production to seamlessly deliver the written vision and more. The results were exceptional and the network client was thrilled with the films. Jamie's good humor in any circumstance and ability to work efficiently under extreme duress is phenomenal. We shot recreations with dozens of actors and a large crew for several episodes of World War Two drama doc in mud and torrential rain for a few weeks and Jamie always delivered and offered wonderful ideas. I am very proud of the film and the work we created and he is a good man to boot.

Andy Papadopoulos Writer Producer Director

Jamie is a joy to work with. An exceptional DOP, creative, calm under pressure and willing to stand in the rain for hours on end to get the shot right! ...Just don't get mud on his van...
