About Me

-has won multiple awards for his cinematic style & passion for creating arresting visuals. Tens of millions of viewers has seen his work on the BBC PBS, Amazon Prime, NBC ABC CNN CBS, Ch5 UK, Netflix CBC HGTV & Discovery, & his clients include brands like Unilever, McDonald’s, Nike, Microsoft, Viacom, Thermo Fischer, KFC, L’Oreal, Nokia, John Frieda, Nestle, Marshall's, RBC, Manulife Financial, and Cisco as well as countless ad agencies, production companies and small/medium businesses. Dave Woodside has 20 years of experience shooting broadcast and corporate documentaries, commercials, narrative films, and television shows worldwide and has been selected as a Cannes Corporate Media & TV Awards 2022 Jury member.
Dave is inspired by creative collaboration - and regularly shoots with directors/producers who are from out of town, both in-person with them in the Toronto area, or on "zoom" from remote locations in Europe, North America, Asia, and Australia. Dave owns all the gear you’ll need, so you don't have to rent anything: Red Gemini, Red Komodo, Sony Fx6, Sony Fx3, and 2x Sony FS7 camera packages, cine primes, zoom lenses, gimbals, dollies, and sliders, wireless monitoring, filters and a range of lighting choices from a compact interview lighting package to a full lighting and grip trailer with over 50 lights. He is also a licensed drone owner/operator.
Dave 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 broadcast docs including the multiple award-winning 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, corporate films and branded content for big multinationals and edgy startups alike.

I have been in the industry since 2000.
