I only offer post production services for projects I have shot, or as part of a full production package produced by Progressive Productions.

Hi. Welcome to my website.

I am a multi skilled professional working in the video production industry in Dublin, Ireland.

I am primarily a Director of Photography, but have developed a special interest in camera movement and stabilisation over the previous years. This means Drones, CableCam, Movi, Motion Controlled (MoCo) sliders, RC Cars etc.

I work freelance for agencies, production companies, directors, and film makers, and I provide full production packages to my own clients under my company name: Progressive Productions.

I have always been intrigued by every step of the production process and have educated myself on many topics. Now, many years into my journey, this range of studies gives me the scope to direct and manage projects from start to finish, and helps me to see the bigger picture when working as part of a larger production team.

People I want to work with:

  • Agencies, production companies, producers, and directors working in Advertising, TV, Corporate, Commercial, and Film.

  • Marketing and advertising managers of brands and companies.

  • Entrepreneurs and business owners.

  • Event organisers and promoters.

  • Film makers, artists, and musicians.

If this is you, please give me a call sometime.



"Martin is one of those rare masters of all trades. Part producer, part director, part DOP, part editor. And, oddly, part camera rental shop. He knows what he’s doing, comes up with great troubleshoots, has a natural eye for the shot and always goes the extra mile for the film, no matter how big or small. Also the guy can really run with a Movi."

Ray Swan, Rothco / Accenture

"Waka is a Dublin based TV production Company supplying original programming and formats to RTE since 2007. We have had the pleasure of working with Martin on numerous projects over the years ranging from studio shows, EFP, DVD production and online. Martin's dedication and commitment to each job is second to none as is his creativity, imagination and engagement with each and every project. He is a skilled cameraman and accomplished editor who always delivers on time, on budget and on-spec. I would have no hesitation in recommending Martin."


Waka TV

"I’ve worked with Martin on a number of big commercial projects over the last few years from RSA to Virgin Media. He’s great to work with from a technical perspective to simply composing a lovely shot. He’s high up on my list of DOP’s."


Noel Byrne, BBDO

"Martin has an abundance of artistic, creative and technical ability. He brings these skills to great effect on our projects and he's a pleasure to work with"



"Martin is professional to deal with from first contact to end of project. His friendly manner and can do attitude make the production process smooth and enjoyable. Martin is willing to take direction but also offer valued suggestions in how to maximise the impact of the shoot. He has an innate understanding of the entire production process and is equally as competent and creative as an editor as he is as a lighting cameraman. I look forward to working with Martin again as I know he will deliver an excellent product and fulfil any brief no matter how complicated."
