About Me

TOBY SLEIGH-JOHNSON - Owner of Handcraft Pictures

I'm not a huge fan of talking about myself, but here goes!

I am Toby Sleigh-Johnson, 35 years old and a wedding filmmaker, avid traveller and scuba-diver, who currently resides in one of my favourite parts of the world: Greenwich, London, where I live with my loving (and eternally patient-while-I-talk-about-cameras) wife!

I started experimenting with video cameras at a young age, making 'movies' with friends and family, when the cameras were as big as me and still took VHS tapes!  I remember my dad showing me how I could make things disappear in the video by filming an object, turning the camera off, moving the object, turning it on again and "hey presto" a movie magic trick!

After that I was hooked, and this obsession carried on during my time at university, running short film screenings for students, before a passionate hobby turned into a business, when I began filming weddings in 2004.  Over the years I have honed my style to one I believe is elegant, timeless and reminiscent of classic cinema, which I love (I have written a blog post about my the films tht most influence my style here.

Other than wedding films, I still love making short films, and I also love to document my travels- below are a few examples, including my most recent project shot on a trip to Iceland.  This film has since been featured in some well known drone publications...
