Dave Tarvit, director and camera








Dave founded DX Films following 20 years of working in professional film production with clients across the UK and Europe. He’s an accomplished lighting cameraman who ensures the stuff we shoot is the best it can be and tells the story.


Dave also edits the films we make. He loves playing with a range of post-production tools to create top quality titles, elegant sub-titling, animated logos and other smart (and often fun) motion graphics.

As well as making films through DX Films, Dave hires himself out as a cameraman to a range of clients. He recently shot a number of key sequences for the multi award-winning BBC wildlife series ‘Highlands – Wild Heart of Scotland’ produced by Maramedia. His video footage was accepted by Getty Images and purchased by a large number of buyers around the world.
