Hi! I'm Simon, or Mr King to many by day! While I much prefer to have a chat over coffee, here's a little about me while you're here! I work as a Biology teacher at the secondary school I went to as a pupil. It fills me with great pride that I'm able to give back to the school that gave me such a good start in life. While teaching is exhausting at times and hard work, I absolutely love seeing young people succeed and better themselves through education. There is no better feeling than seeing the positive impact you've had on a pupil's life, be it through exam results or them responding to my fantastic pearls of wisdom!! Ha!
Outside of teaching, I love exercise, but also love food (chocolate!). Slogging away on my stepper or lifting a heavy weight keeps my mind healthy, and I genuinely don't know where I'd be without exercise. I have my own home gym which is my escape, my way of managing the stresses daily life can bring and where I can focus purely on me. I've recently been enjoying an early morning walk before the world has awoken, which is a lot different to the more normal late night strolls that used to be my norm!
Back in 2016, my older brother showed me his drone, and from there, a very expensive seed was planted!! I started off being really interested in holiday videos on YouTube. I loved seeing some glorious sun filled views, followed by some water sport action all edited to some tropical house tunes! It inspired me to make my own travel video - a solo holiday in Croatia. I felt I did an ok job, but decided to take it further and invest in my first proper DSLR camera. A few further expensive purchases later, including a move to Sony's mirrorless cameras, I ended up making a video of Aberdeen at night, which went semi "viral" online (at least compared to my usual uploads!!). From that, I ended up with enquiries for videography work and things have snowballed since then. I absolutely love seeing the highlight video from a wedding coming together, telling the story of the couple's day in a way unique to their day. Hearing how pleased couples are when they've watched their videos is definitely up there with the highs of the teaching!

Simon we are absolutely over the moon with our video. I can't stop watching it and I cried more watching it than I did on the day!
We cannot and never will be able to thank you enough for what you have put together.
We are blown away. They are incredible. We can't thank you enough because they are perfect.

I don't even have words, you have no idea how much we love it, I've cried so much! How did you do that? It is UNREAL!
We love it! Had me feeling all the emotions again. You've captured all the best moments, thank you so much!
That is truly amazing Simon. We can't get over how well you've captured the whole day, it was just perfect.
