Arlen Figgis – Director of Photography




About Me

For a self-taught musician, composer and producer the move into video was pretty seamless. London born and bred,  Arlen has now travelled the world many times over as Director of Photography for everything from the gumball rally to kidswear beach shoots – from Southend to Capetown!

A truly versatile artist, Arlen is at home working on his own as he is directing a large production team. As a Dad of two, he is brilliant at getting kids to be kids and deliver a natural performance to the camera. He works just as well with grown-ups, YouTubers and celebrities. 

Arlen is able to deliver a total package from cinematography to the final edit  – including music composition for film, TVCs and online content. With a fully equipped recording studio and post facility in North London –  clients can attend in person or link-in remotely.

Clients include River Island, Monsoon, Levis, Nike, Armani, Ted Baker and Disney. Editorial credits include Elle and Harpers Bazaar.

When not shooting Arlen can either be found camping with his boys, helping to build the family home or DJ’ing at a festival.
