    Testimonials

    "Dan is a joy to work with. A complete professional and always goes the extra mile to make sure the shoot is the best it can possibly be. He has a really good eye as well as a depth of knowledge and experience that's invaluable. He's also a delightful bloke and we had great fun filming together." - Lorraine Kelly | OBE Presenter & Journalist

    "Dan is one of the best cameramen I have ever worked with in more than 40 years in the business. Always enthusiastic, diligent, hugely talented and above all a thoroughly decent guy to have at your side" - John Stapleton | Award Winning British Journalist & Presenter

    "Don Martin....oops....Dan Martland is quite simply one of the finest cameramen I have ever worked with. His attention to detail, his ability to go "the extra mile" to get the shots needed and general professionalism makes him truly a "stand out". Dan is also a brilliant stills photographer and he brings this skill to work with a moving camera in a most dynamic way. On the personal side Dan is a joy to work with, fun and always happy to add a skilled comment. I recommend him highly." - Ross King | 4 Time News Emmy Winner

    "Dan’s the man. Having worked with him on a variety of jobs, shooting both photographic stills and video, I know he’s exceptional in stressful situations and a technical whizz. His pictures are always GORGEOUS. And otherwise average stories are lifted. He offers up creative storytelling ideas and is a master of lighting." - Jack Tame | TVNZ's US Correspondent

    "In all my years in broadcasting, I have never met a better cameraman/editor than Dan. He is a wonderful talent with a deep understanding of how to evoke emotion from picture, how to engage the viewer, and simply, how to make great films. He works incredibly hard, and constantly pushes himself to understand the latest industry skills and technology to achieve even better standards. He has vast experience within the television/film business, yet his passion to get the best shot, be creative and produce the best work is unrelenting." - Lucy Watson | ITV China Correspondent

    "I have worked with dozens of cameramen, good and horribly bad, during my decades in television so I know all about the sense of relief you have as a correspondent when you meet a cameraman who not only can “make it happen” but can make it happen with bells on! Dan Martland is that Cameraman! Dan always has very creative ideas which he can achieve both through exceptionally good camera work but also in the edit room. He is a perfectionist with an absolute eye and ear for detail. We traveled extensively during our time in New York and he is also excellent company with a great sense of humour- and that can be vital!" - Sue Jameson | Political Editor - ITV Daybreak

    "Having worked with Dan extensively over the years, I can assure you that his work is absolutely top notch. Creative ideas, stunning camerawork and a great attitude, Dan is a really good team player who always goes the extra mile, no matter how challenging the situation may be. We have worked on many different stories together in some really unusual and difficult situations, and he always delivers the goods." - Nick Dixon | Journalist - ITV Daybreak

    Dan is a highly skilled cameraman and editor - he has an amazing eye for detail and human emotion and, most importantly, can capture these in the camera. He is instictive and never misses the shot - I've worked with him in a studio environment and he is always thinking at least one step ahead of the action. Dan is a real people person and has a great sense of humour, working with him is a real pleasure. I hope we get to work together again soon! - Martin Collett | Channel 4 News Director

    "Dan is a first rate cameraman. His professionalism and expertise in his field make him an asset to any production. He thrives on working under pressure to tight deadlines and is a great team player with an enviable creative flair." - Nicolas Wall | Director - ITN / NBC

    What Harry Potter can do with a wand, Dan Martland can do with a camera. For he is just magic as a camera operator. It's like Dan has a sixth sense in always knowing when to get the right shot at the right time. I've worked with him in Los Angeles and seen him in action in New York but wherever in the world Dan turns his lens, there's always going to be something well worth watching. - Sandro Monetti | British Academy of Film and Television Arts Los Angeles Board of Directors

    "Dan is an outstanding camera operator and editor, his creativity lights up the screen and his work for Good Morning Britain was first class" - Erron Gordon, Series Director - ITV Breakfast / ITV Studios
