Mountain Filming & Photography
We provide a specialist mountain cameraman service.
I have worked for a variety of production companies and had my work broadcast on the BBC and ITV as a mountain cameraman. I work on a freelance basis for BBC Wales as a mountain cameraman and can provide my own equipment including Sony FS5 (4K 35mm) Panasonic GH4 (4k micro 4/3) cameras and DJI Ronin M Stabilisation Gimbal – this give a great combination to produce super smooth, stabilised hand held footage for filming action sports such as climbing, mountaineering and fell running. I also have a couple of GoPro Hero 4 Black cameras and a range of mounts for different adventure sports. Read more about our equipment.
As a mountaineer I hold the highest instructional qualification in the UK (MIC) for all aspects of summer and winter climbing and mountaineering and the International Mountain Leader qualification. I am also a member and current Chairman of the Llanberis Mountain Rescue team covering Snowdon. I am an active climber and mountaineer and have climbed throughout the UK, Alps, Himalaya, Norway, USA and enjoyed several trips to the Arctic. Routes include a traverse of the Matterhorn, the North Face of the Grande Jorasses, Mont Blanc, 6000m peaks in Nepal, Kilimanjaro and many more.
I am happy to work at a daily rate that includes both drone and hand held footage. Email or call to discuss your ideas.
What have previous clients said?
Amongst an emerging world of drone pilots where there are good, bad and chancers a plenty, Rob stands head and shoulders above all I have worked with.
Not only his sheer professionalism, efficiency (in often uncompromising locations) and affable nature but also his mass of experience and ability in the
outdoor/mountain world make him an easy recommendation.Alistair Lee - Posing Productions
Rob Johnson filmed some stunning aerial footage for a mountain rescue programme I worked on for BBC Wales/S4C. The pictures not only gave a visual lift to the film, but it also helped with marketing - with a 30-second montage of a mountaineer crossing the Crib Goch ridge getting a million views on Facebook. Rob was very easy to work with, professional and positive. Most importantly for a job like this, which involved filming in some areas which are not for the faint-hearted, Rob's experience as a mountaineer was invaluable to ensure we not only got the shots, but got them safely.

Hi Rob – A quick note to say that the clips on Crib Goch with Caradog are superb world class- thank you – you have a great talent.Catrin Jones - Producer - BBC
Rob has the rare combination of a cinematographer's eye and a mountaineer's skill that enable him to be in the right place at the right time to capture magical moments on film - be it on the ground or from the air. Not only was he a star contributor to The Mountain series - he also shot some of the most spectacular images enjoyed by ITV Wales viewers. He's also a top bloke!!Aled Llyr - Director - Slam Media
