My name is Adam Tavner, I am a professional sound recordist and drone pilot who lives in Stroud in Gloucestershire.

With twenty years of experience I’ve worked within factual programming, documentary, commercials, corporate and drama. I’ve been employed by most of the major broadcasters and production companies. I have experience in a wide range of environments and demonstrate an intelligent, flexible and versatile approach.

I am also a qualified, CAA approved, Commercial Drone Pilot (PfCO) with a current Operational Authorisation.  I offer this either in addition to my work as a sound recordist or as a stand alone service.

I have worked extensively at home and abroad. Often working in tough and challenging environments. I demonstrate a personable manner, excellent communication skills and quickly gain a reputation as a trusted member of any team, always striving for the best sound possible.

My sound kit is comprehensive; I own the latest mixers and recorders and have an arsenal of radio mics, microphones and time code systems which allows me to meet the needs of any project. I look forward to speaking to you about your project.

I’m a regular sound recordist on this popular BBC1 programme.  I often record the location shoot with Matt, Ellie, John, Tom or Helen.  I also love to travel north in the Costwolds to film Adams Farm.
