James Holman

I'm a Queenstown-based owner-operator cinematographer shooting on both the C300MK3 and Sony FS7. I am available on a day or project rate and have a wide range of kit including full audio and lighting set-up. I enjoy working in the great outdoors on branded content here in New Zealand and overseas. I have experience shooting in countries including Palestine, Iraq, Myanmar, Argentina, Morocco, Australia, the UK and US and enjoy the challenge of working in tough environments. This have included Antarctica, the Gobi, Sahara and Atacama deserts.


Industry Experience

I have produced content for a vast range of clients and production companies including Diaries Downunder, Kinetic Media, the Australian Youth Olympic Team, Pursekey Productions, Redbull, Ngāi Tahu Tourism, Destination Queenstown, Air New Zealand and Tourism New Zealand. Freelancing for Artisa Film in Yangon, Myanmar I have camera operated on TVCs using both Arri Alexa Mini and RED 8K Helium for clients such as Samsung, Dutch Lady, Premier Coffee and the United Nations. I have directed, shot and edited three award-winning youth culture films in Myanmar; Altered Focus: Burma, Youth of Yangon and Pushing Myanmar.
