Videographer Perth // Sam Dylan Irwin's Background
Videographer Perth // Sam Dylan Irwin I offer a range of videographer and video production services in Perth, Australia. Originally I grew up in New Zealand and got my first break in the film industry working as an assistant editor in Wellington. After discovering my love for cinematography, I moved to Sydney to study. For over 13 years I have been living and travelling around the world, but mostly going between New Zealand and Tasmania, and now I am based in Perth. I have a strong technical background in cinematography, but also polished skills in documentary storytelling, editing and photography. I have worked for government organisations in video brand marketing production and strategy With all of this, my love for capturing images and telling stories started when I was 6 years old. My father and mother had a self-built darkroom where they developed film, both being keen photographers. I use to take cameras around the farm where I grew up, surrounded by the New Zealand Southern Alps and lush greenery. I received my first digital camera, which was 0.3 megapixels at the time. Since then I've always had an interest in photography and video production. Fast forward to 2010, I graduated from The International Film School Sydney with an Advanced Diploma in Cinematography. Since then he has been working constantly in Australia and New Zealand, shooting TVC’s for clients such as Uniqlo, Nike, Rebel Sport, and many music videos for Sony and EMI.
I have also shot feature-length documentaries and many short films.
I have had work screened internationally and locally in festivals such as Margret River Film Festival and has been nominated for Australian music video of the year at the Triple J awards.
With my commercial and documentary video production and marketing background, I understand the vital importance of creating visually engaging content, focused on human-centred story-telling. This is very important, especially in this day and age where there is a battle for attention.
With equal strengths in film production, still photography and post-production – I have a robust technical understanding of filmmaking having shot across RED, Arri, 35mm and 16mm film and various other digital formats. . My passion for creating powerful stories, amazing images and videos still continue now that I am in my mid-30s. I'm enjoying working with Perth businesses and brands to create content that is next-level and beyond expectations. I have adapted to become a specialist in creating videos for social media including Tik-Tok, Instagram Reels, and Facebook Reels. This short-form video content is easily consumable and becoming more and more in demand by organisations, brands and businesses.
