Jon Waters - lighting cameraman - director - designer.

I’ve always been passionate about telling other peoples stories, and my approach to anything I do is effected by this. Even a simple endorsement video should be engaging, there’s just too much competition on the net now to produce average content, standards must be high.

I can organise complete crews including producer, directors, makeup, sound etc, for all budgets.
