About Me

Dave Woodside has 20 years of experience shooting documentaries, commercials, narrative films, and television shows worldwide. He is known for his intuitive vision, cinematic style, and passion for creating arresting visuals, and his award-winning productions are seen by tens of millions of viewers worldwide.

Dave is inspired by creative collaboration - whether you're director is local or remote. He believes sincerely that every project, big or small, is one of a kind, and every show deserves its own unique visual style that engages the viewer, and draws them in. He has successfully brought this approach to countless docs including the globe spanning PBS hit "Confucius Was a Foodie" (11 million viewers per episode), to films like the multiple festival winner “The Devil’s Tail”, and to commercials and branded content for McDonald’s, KFC, Swiss Chalet, L’Oreal, Nike, Nokia, John Frieda, Mr Sub, Shoppers Drugmart, Cuba Tourism, and more. Dave also regularly shoots with directors/producers who are on "zoom" from remote locations in Europe and all over North America.

Dave Woodside is a fully equipped cinematographer - so you don't have to rent anything! He owns a Red Gemini, Red Komodo, 2x Blackmagic pocket 6Ks, and Sony FS7 camera packages, cine primes, zoom lenses, gimbals, dollies, and sliders, wireless monitoring, a full lighting and grip package trailer with 35 lights, and an interview audio package if necessary. He is also a licensed drone operator.

Dave is looking forward to capturing some amazing images for your next production!

I have been in the industry since 2000.
