High Peak Productions is a family business; we are a husband and wife team who met while working for British Cycling and enjoyed it so much that we set up our own company so we could spend every day working alongside each other!
High Peak Productions was a leap of faith for us. We knew we loved working together and making great content, but anyone who says branching out and starting your own company isn't scary is telling porky pies! We decided that Simon would be our first full time member of staff - he is after all the lead camera operator and editor, pretty crucial really - and that Eve would get a 'proper job' to make sure we weren't penniless if it all went wrong!
We needn't have worried; since we've been in business we have built a strong and loyal client base and have been able to diversify our offer as time has gone on. Eve has since come on board full time.
Having come from the world of cycling, we naturally started by making sports video. We still love working with sports organisations and athletes but we have also had the opportunity move into different industries, and create a much broader range of video content.
We are a chalk and cheese pairing, which we think means we have the perfect balance for our team. While Eve is an extrovert, Simon is quiet and thoughtful; Simon is technical and Eve is creative; together we are a great team and provide our clients with an all-round service.
