"I've worked with Mark Slemmings on a number of occasions and I'm happy to recommend him wholeheartedly. Mark is a creative and conscientious cameraman who is always willing to go that extra mile to get the right shots. He's also an absolute pleasure to work with, a genuinely nice guy who always gets on well with the rest of the crew and is a great ice breaker with nervous camera subjects. Mark is an excellent addition to any video shoot."

"I just wanted to drop you a quick line to say thank you for putting us in touch with Mark Slemmings recently. I was away on annual leave when the shoot took place so I haven't had time to thank him personally for his help on the day but the footage he shot for us was fantastic and we'd definitely work with him again should any similar projects come up."
Ric Sumner, Head of Broadcast, SportsBeat

"Mark is a fantastic cameraman to work with, easy going, very professional and client friendly. He always puts in that little bit extra on a shoot to get the best material and is very diligent ensuring everything needed is covered. Great in pressured news environments but equally good when needed for more creative shoots. I would have no hesitation in recommending Mark as a lighting cameraman."

"Mark is a very competent and focused cameraman, hard working and always willing to go the extra mile, he has worked for us both as a live cameraman on our BBC News contract and as an ENG cameraman for ad hoc clients over the past 7 years. He's well organised and often acts as producer/co-ordinator on our deployments, so more than capable at managing video projects.
I'd have no hesitation in recommending his expert services!"

"I worked with Mark on an incredibly busy day of lives and pool filming. I found him to be extremely helpful and amenable. He is very calm under pressure which made our job much easier. Mark was a pleasure to work with, nothing was too much trouble, and he was always anticipating our next requirement."

"I don't know how you did it, but the sound on the press conference was absolutely spot on, as were the camera moves on that long table of speakers at the press conference. "

"Hi Mark, thank you so much for all your amazing hard work yesterday and on Wednesday evening - I really appreciate the long hours and all the effort that you and all your team put in.
The client is delighted with all the footage that we have put out so far and in my terms I think the whole day ran very smoothly.
I look forward to working with you again soon!"
Leon Schlesinger, Senior Producer, TVC, November 2013

"I just wanted to say a big thank you ... for this week.
It's been one of the busiest weeks I've known for breaking stories and
you've been great at dropping everything and scrambling from one part of the patch, working over hours and just getting on with making it all happen.

Yesterday was a prime example - having driven all the way to Bedford on the cricket story, done a stonking live, fed some material and then literally having to derig and head all the way back to Birmingham on the nursery story - and then stay late so we could react to the charges and make sure the piece worked for the Ten."
Claire Gibson, Head of BBC Midlands and East News Bureau

"You were a real star yesterday Mark so thank you very much!"
