David Knight - 20th Sept 2011

Originally a photographer who moved into the moving image when he met the Rizzle Kicks and started documenting their songs with a Canon 5D Mark 2, he is now looking to work with different artists in different genres of music.

Toby says of his relationship with Jordan and Harley of Rizzle Kicks: "I loved the vibe of the music Jordan had started doing with Harley, and most importantly I knew how passionate and determined he was, which made me think he had a good chance of turning that talent into success. I also knew how good I could make 5D footage look if I got it right and genuinely felt a good video would get them more YouTube fans and accelerate their progression. A video is so much more effective than an anonymous MP3, especially when it contains charismatic and talented performers. I bought another camera and steadicam and went back and we filmed the first proper video, Down With The Trumpets, in the summer of 2010.

With the band's growing popularity he's seen the limitations of being a 'lone gunman' and joined Luti Media. "I'm very excited about working with them and working in different genres and with different styles of music. I want to find artists I believe in, get their sentiments across and treat each video as a project in making a video that people with talk about. For that I need some great production support, so I'm happy to join the team."

As with the rest of the Luti Media roster, Toby will be repped by Alexa Haywood at Free Agent UK.
