"I had a wonderful New Zealand safari that was filmed by Mark. He did a great job on filming as well as editing the filming of the whole trip. His finished DVD will always be a treasure to me. Mark climbed the mountains,took the pictures,and was a real asset to my trip. I will always use him in future hunts. A great guy."
William L. Jones - Alabama, USA
"Mark Hamilton of Mountain Edge Productions has now filmed three hunts for us. Two of the hunts he has filmed for us were genuine wilderness hunts, hunting from a tent camp in South Westland. Mark’s attention to detail means he has been able to capture the whole wilderness experience of the hunts we offer. Mark is a keen hunter himself. There is no need to explain the type of film sequences you want, it just happens. One of the things we really appreciate about Mark’s work is the way he captures the different moods the environment, waterfalls, the rolling of the mist or dew drops in the morning. Filming and editing a hunt is a huge job right through to the finished product and requires many skills. We highly recommend Mark and the professional service's he has to offer."

"Here at New Zealand Trophy Hunting, we have on going filming requirements for both our hunting clients and our own promotional needs.
We enlisted the skills of videographer Mark Hamilton and his company Mountain Edge productions to capture the experiences of our many international hunting clients and also to put together our own promotional material in the form of short films on DVD.
Mark at Mountain Edge is the perfect man for these contracts for many reasons.
Firstly he is a highy experienced hunter,hunting guide and taxidermist so he knows how to get great footage without alerting animals to his whereabouts or getting in the way of the hunt. This is something that sets Mark apart from many other videographers in the industry. He is also very capable of guiding and caping animals too, should those extra skills be required during the hunt.
Secondly he has a great ability to always be in the right position at the right time to record the hunt with a vast series of camera angles and concepts. His creative flare and talent behind the camera enable him to capture the events and scenes of the hunt as they unfold and coupled with his high quality equipment and exceptional editing skills, guarantees a final product of the absolute highest quality.
His patient and relaxed yet professional manner make him a great person to work with on any filming job or adventure and ourselves and our hunting clients are always thrilled with the final product.
I could not recommend anyone more highly than Mark and Mountain Edge Productions to record and document that once in a lifetime hunting , fishing or outdoor adventure."
Gus Bisset - Manager & Professional Hunter - New Zealand Trophy Hunting
"We employed Mark Hamilton of Mountain Edge to film one our clients,Bill Jones, on his hunting quest to take home Tahr, Chamois, Red Stag and Arapawa Ram. Every morning Mark was on time and ready for the day. He is professional in every aspect of his work, yet always fun to be around. With his knowledge of hunting, Mark was a great help with all the daily events, but maintained coverage of everything that took place. We waited only a short time for the final edited film to arrive. It was excellent to see the week we had and watch the adventure unfold again. I would have no hesitation in marketing Mark to ur future clients to catch their memories and hunting experiences. They are priceless moments on film."

"This was our first trip to New Zealand and my husband Justin and I were lucky to have Mark join us to document our wonderful experience. Not only is he great at what he does, we were quick to learn that he is a very good guide as well. We couldn't be happier with our DVD. It captured moments that we are able to share with our friends and family in a way that we couldn't explain otherwise. It was particularly special for me because I now have a professional documentation of my first big game kill. By the end of our experience, Mark was not just the camera guy, he was someone that we would consider a friend. He made us feel welcome and put a great touch to our video. We would definitely recommend him to others and hopefully we can visit New Zealand again and use his services".

"If you are going hunting and would like to be able to preserve all those heart pounding, exciting adventures on film; you’d better take Mark along. Mark Hamilton of Mountain Edge Video Productions is the very best you’ll ever find to capture your dream hunt on video. He was always in position to film when the action was hot, and never missed a lick. Mark’s ability at spotting game was also an incredible asset to my hunt. Without ever interfering with the hunt in any way Mark was able to plan and act to ensure the stalk and hunt were successful and recorded. As an unforeseen bonus he was able to film my new SCI world record Red Stag shot with a 79 cal. flintlock rifle! It was a great addition to my hunt to have the adventure of a lifetime preserved to enjoy and share with my family and friends.
Thanks again Mark".

"Mark Hamilton with Mountain Edge was highly recommended for filming my New Zealand adventure. After meeting him in person, one can say he expresses true professionalism when he is behind the camera. Without a doubt, his first class services are some of the best in the business. The video he produced for me is proof of that."

"WOW!!! Better than I imagined. You have done a wonderful job for me. You not only captured the hunts in perfect detail, but you have added some great footage of other animals and great scenery. It was great doing business with you. I hope we cross paths again. No doubt the hunt in New Zealand was the highlight of our entire vacation including Australia. Thanks again. I look forward to receiving the two DVD's."
