Wales, UK | Across the Emirates | Around the World
Rhys Hopkins is from Wales, UK, and is ready to take assignments anywhere in the world.
He arrived in the United Arab Emirates in 2008 working as a teacher, but given an opportunity he turned a past-time into a new profession.
After initially gaining a passion for fashion and lifestyle stills photography, he expanded his scope of work to include larger-scale production, taking on the role of Producer; he is able to contribute as a creative in pre-production as well as serve as Director or DOP on certain projects.
Rhys has always demonstrated a natural, keen eye for detail and an intuitive understanding of people's needs; he has been commended on many occasions for his professionalism that creates an easy working environment and his ability to manage projects, staying calm under pressure. He is driven to produce results and form long-lasting relationships with ambitious clients and agencies.
Given his considerable years in the region and thus a formidable client list, Rhys is able to surround himself with the highest caliber of colleagues and talent to form the ideal team for a project; he is also a competent drone pilot and works with industry standard cameras, software and equipment.
Away from work Rhys has a love for his family and his dogs. A lifelong basketballer, musician and traveller who is always seeking the new adventure, experience and knowledge.
