Let me tell you a story

Welcome to James Small Videos

Videography might seem a bit of an afterthought when you’ve got a photographer/photo booth on board and the party planer has you covered, but rest assured nothing comes close to watching your party after the event! The feeling, the atmosphere, the shapes we threw, who danced with whom, did i really do that?

James Small Videos takes a Bar Mitzvah, wedding or event and injects fun, passion, and expertise. Moving images and testimonials of friends and family are locked on film forever. My clients needs and expectations for the day are the most important aspect for me and consulting with me beforehand so that I understand your style and vision (especially for corporate films) and knowing your timings provides the perfect package. Will you need me to film a Bat Mitzvah rehearsal or call up? Would you like me at more than one location throughout the day? Are there any surprise elements throughout the evening? How many cameras are needed? Whatever your circumstances I am here to provide a bespoke package for you.

About Me

James Small


I started as a camera operator for the television industry over 20 years ago and i have not looked back. I can honestly say i love what i do and since entering the freelance world where i could put my camera and editing skills into producing both personal and corporate films, is definitely a reflection of my passion for the job i adore.

Why I Filming

I have always been intrigued by cameras and so it was a small step from gaining my photography badge in the scouts to studying media in university where i majored in photography. From there i moved behind television cameras in my first job at Teddington Studios and the rest as they say is history.

Why I Editing

To be able to edit a Wedding, Barmitzvah or party and watch how the day comes together, then present it to the client and get such positive feedback completes the process of filming and makes it all so worth while.

Why I  My Job

I have been lucky enough to film everything from Music, to live T.V (including most cookery shows, This Morning, The Wright Stuff) and high end sports events (The F.A Cup, Wimbledon) Every day is different.
