HI, I'm Henry Bird,, for those who don’t know me, I’m a photographer and filmmaker with love for the little things in life! Between 2016-’19, I worked on cruise liners developing my skills. I photographed weddings and engagements, studio portraits, and created location films of the ports. With colourful sunsets, and picturesque landscapes… working at sea is a creative’s dream!
Photographing weddings stole my heart. I loved hearing how a couple first met, witnessing their “I Do’s”, then spending 45minutes in a relaxed, heartwarming walkabout using my camera to tell their story. It’s a beautiful world full of happiness, love and cwtches!
This also rings true for my commissioned work. While in port, I became passionate about supporting small businesses. Commercially, whereas words and pictures grab attention, I truly believe I will capture a film that not only represents your company’s ethos, but help your passion, hard work and personality shine through! Being a family man, I love helping family-run businesses grow and as the saying goes, “a picture is worth a thousand words”... imagine what a moving picture can do!
So... want to share the emotions of your big day, or pass your passion on to your customers… I’d love to hear more about you and together, we can create, capture and tell new stories... your story!
Mother of Jasper Thomas Banfield
Jasper’s shoot with Henry was relaxed and fun. I was worried about how cooperative my 8day old would be and what would happen if he was crying, needed changing or feeding, but I needn’t have worried. Henry was flexible; pausing when Jasper was feeding, and talking about what we could try next.
Henry had a way of making the whole thing seem natural with small pointers of where to stand. Mostly it was just me cuddling Jasper and revelling in his new-born face, which Henry captured beautifully!
I felt very comfortable while he was shooting. I usually avoid having candid photos taken with me in, however, Henry was skilled at making Jasper the focus of the pictures in such a way that I didn’t mind being in them too!
Shortly after the shoot, Henry sent us a beautiful wooden box and USB with all of our shots, and I can honestly say I’ve never loved a set of photos so much before!
I would 100% recommend HBirdsEyeView to anyone considering a newborn shoot!
Bannatyne Health Club and Spa Cardiff
Henry approached me with an idea to do a promotional Christmas video for all our guests and members of 2019. I was instantly on-board and excited by Henry's vision!
Henry scripted, planned, developed and recorded the entire process with professionalism and in precise detail. He is unquestionably a perfectionist, and his work is a credit to his patience and passion.
The outcome was much more than I had expected. The video has already reached over 1,000 views in such a short amount of time. It encompasses everything we are as a club, and for that, I am thankful.
Henry, you are a superstar and a real asset to the club, thank you,
