In this interview with Marbella wedding videographer Jeremy Standley from Cinefoto he shares what inspires him, what challenges him and what sets him apart from everyone else.
A mixture of things; creative curiosity was the strongest. I would often watch films after weddings I had photographed and felt that they did not represent the feeling and emotion of the day. I want to produce creative films with strong composition and emotion, not just drones, gimbals and bad music choices.
We started Cinefoto to offer a one-stop service for photography and video, offering something different visually.
Creative, innovative, professional, experienced, discreet.
I think people approach wedding videos in different ways. For me I think a minimal creative approach is what works for me. The videographer’s approach and presence will often dictate the type of film.
It is very personal, and will depend very much on each couple, budget, tastes – I would encourage clients to explore all options.
Whichever part has the best light.
With video I try and get inspiration from non-wedding film makers.
I am not sure the end product has changed all that much, despite changes in equipment. Composition will always be king and you cannot buy that.
Parking! Making a great wedding film is all challenging.
It doesn’t leave that much time! I love riding my MTB, cooking (I am trying to be more vegan but the chopping takes up so much time). I also love to play cricket, stand-up paddle and I travel whenever possible.
I like all locations. We are very fortunate in Spain to have locations that vary so much.
I think it’s important to do your research, try and find someone whose work really resonates with you both.
