  • Lee is fantastic to work with. A great shoot/edit, excellent team player and very capable in the field.

    Stuart Hughes
    Senior Broadcast Journalist at BBC
  • I’ve worked with Lee on a number of major projects at Reuters and his work has always been first class. It was a particular pleasure to work with him at the Rio Olympics where Lee worked tirelessly for 23 days straight, sometimes 17 hour days, as a shoot edit, turning around top quality news and feature packages for our clients. I couldn’t recommend Lee high enough, he’s a pleasure to work with.

  • Lee is a brilliant video journalist. Confident, proactive, intelligent and always willing to go the extra mile. We worked together on a number of a projects at Reuters in and around London over a number of years. I knew with Lee involved, we’d always get the best shots, the best stories. I’d recommend Lee to any organisation after a reliable, superb cameraman.

  • Probably the most intense photo shoot I’ve ever been responsible for. Luckily I had the fabulous Lee Durant to carry me. PR friends you are NOT allowed to steal him from me.
