I'm an Australian based DOP with over 30 years experience in the film and television industry. I’ve known Anthony for nearly that long and worked with him closely as a Steadicam Operator and Cinematographer whilst he was based in Australia. Anthony is one of those people who are an absolute pleasure to work alongside. His professionalism, passion, creativity, eye for detail and good manner, along with great people skills, make him an undeniable asset to any genre of production. I cannot recommend Anthony enough for your next production.

It has been my pleasure to collaborate with Anthony Bowes on a number of projects over the years in his capacity as Steadicam Operator. From the production standpoint, Anthony proved himself extremely capable but also a warm and collaborative presence on the set.
He can be relied upon to apply due diligence in pre production so as to anticipate any potential issues that could arise on the day and highlight any requirements or needs to production well in advance.
His results speak for themselves in terms of the quality of work delivered, sometimes in quite tricky and challenging locations. His skill with the rig has paid dividends in terms of prep time on the day and quick, efficient turnarounds.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Anthony to any production and would welcome any opportunity to work with him again.
Anthony is a true professional - great skill, great eye and great attitude. Our shoot was entirely based around the use of a Steadicam, and Anthony stepped up to the plate, and brought some serious game. His skill and devotion is unbelievable, especially on such a demanding shoot that had long takes through awkward locations. He is someone that I'll continue to have by my side on any future productions. I would highly recommend Anthony to anyone looking for a Steadicam Op for any production.

I’ve only worked with Anthony Bowes for the first time recently.
He was brilliant to have on set and performed his duties as a Steadicam Operator with the upmost profession. He was a great energy to have around while filming and I enjoyed his company immensely, I would highly recommend him for any future projects.
Anthony is a focused, hard working, team player. He is a true professional in all aspects of the job. His care and attention to detail when setting up the Steadicam rig was very impressive not to mention his skill while utilising it in cramped or tricky conditions, I would not hesitate to recommend Anthony and would very much like to see him on the jobs I am on.
'Steadicam Zephyr' Personal Training Course
by Film Equipment Hire Ireland
As an experienced operator Anthony knows exactly what it takes to develop and hone your skills in the art of Steadicam. Throughout his well structured course Anthony encouraged us to get stuck in, understanding just how important hands on experience is to the development of the intuitive ‘feel’ you need when operating a Steadicam. Challenging us to balance the device over and over so that it become automatic is just one example of how he pushed us to get as much out of the time that we had together as we could. We came away from the class excited about what we had learnt and with a good enough grounding in the basics to perform simple yet effective camera moves. I couldn’t recommend this class more highly!
