Since the late 1990s Stephen has contributed to a number of broadcast outlets, ranging from the BBC to start ups. During the dot com boom he was broadcast editor of a UK financial news website.
Today, he works as a broadcast journalist, director and producer as well as providing consulting services to organisations looking to add streaming media, podcasts and videocasts to their websites.
Stephen’s recent work audio and video work has been used by publishers including the Financial Times – where he is a regular contributor to their podcasts – by Dennis Publishing, and by Reed Business Information.
Projects range from simple, single-camera “self op” video shoots to multi-camera productions together with other freelancers or production companies, as well as working with clients’ in-house crews.
Stephen maintains an in-house audio studio, with ISDN and IP links, for interviews, podcasts and voiceover work. Good audio is essential to all factual programming, and audiences for podcasts continue to grow.
