About Us

Rockliffe Media is owned and operated by Howard Rockliffe Photography and film making is something that I have been passionate about since I was about twelve years old. After leaving college, his first full time job was working for Lancashire Constabulary, in the scenes of crime department, after which, he began work as a young assistant photographing portraits and weddings with a studio in Reading. He then joined the television industry, embarking on a career as a location cameraman with ITV West in Bristol.

After leaving ITV he started his own commercial photography business, at the same time, working as a video producer, making films for corporate clients including Barclaycard, Somerfield and Oxford Instruments. In the autumn of 2014 Howard became a qualified CAA approved drone operator.
