Newshot Video is the trading name of Paul Russell,

a West Central Scotland based lighiting camera operator and video editor. 


I have 20 years professional experience gained since leaving Glasgow College of Building & Printing with the course prize in Television Operations and Production (HND).  I also hold a combined studies degree from Caledonian University with Communication & Mass Media as the main study area.

Before going freelance in Summer 2014 I worked for what is now Reach but was the Trinity Mirror Group producing event VTs, corporate films, national television adverts and external client video work.

Newshot Video now shoots in 4K on CSC type cameras, but can also provide 1080HD rushes and edits.


I am comfortable on many types of camera from 1/3rd type to ENG format, DSLR and Cinema, should there be a particular format you wish to hire in.


Editing is performed on Adobe Premiere, with graphics and captions created in Photoshop and After Effects.


I am experienced with location and studio recording and have a good knowledge of various lighting and sound recording gear.

If I'm not behind a camera or in front of a computer I'll probably be out a walk with my wife and my dogs, maybe even at Newshot Island.
