Greetings. My name is Adam Dodd and I am a freelance DOP from Sydney Australia. I have over 20 years experience shooting video content for a wide variety of clients around the world. I am also the founder of Octopus Films and one of our specialties is helping international productions come to Australia and shoot the content they need for their projects.

Our name, Octopus Films implies that we can wrangle almost anything together to meet our clients needs. Our network of trusted professional suppliers from runners to gaffers and grips to editors and rental houses always deliver world class services and results.

We have co produced with many film production and still photographic teams from the UK, USA, Japan, India, Poland, Germany and have many other places across the globe shooting TVC's, documentaries, high end real estate, promos, and online content.

During Covid times however we have needed to pivot and change from hosting and co producing to shooting the content here in Australia for clients around the world with the client producing and directing remotely in their country of origin.

We can arrange shoots across Australia and New Zealand and of course in our home town of Sydney. Please feel free to contact me personally to discuss how we can help with your project.

If you have a smaller project and just need me to shot content for you I will be more than happy to do so. Please drop me a line!


I have been in the industry since 1994.
