Peter has certainly demonstrated these skills throughout all projects set forth by the Vancouver International Film Festival marketing department; as well as conveyed many qualities which befit a confident team leader. His diligence, wealth of knowledge, professionalism, creativity, and energy has made working with him a joy. Peter is an exceptional individual, and I enthusiastically recommend him.”

– Morgaine Jennings, Marketing Coordinator, Vancouver International Film Festival


“I hired Peter to film a product demonstration video. I was very pleased with my decision to do so. He was punctual, came in on budget and was very professional. His suggestions and input throughout the shoot turned out to be extremely helpful, especially for the editing process. The quality of video and sound he recorded was excellent. It really made the over all production of the video look professional. I would definitely refer and/or work with him again”

– Tony Rukavina, Product Developer, Floyd Rose


“Peter was great in delivering exactly what we needed in the product videos! He was very thorough throughout the preparation and the actual filming process. We showed Peter some videos for reference and he outdid our expectation. We are very happy with the end results. We definitely look forward to working with him again in the near future!”

– Claire Kao, Youneed Massage Chair


“Earlier this year we had developed an LNG Firefighting training course for two of the local ferry companies in BC. This training was the first of its kind in Canada and we thought it would be a good idea to have a professional videographer cover the course.

After contacting Peter and our brief chat over the phone, it was clear that Peter was the person for the job. We had decided on developing a short promotional video of the course and needed someone that would play two roles, director and also videographer. We only had an eight-hour window to shoot the video during the training. Peter took full control of the situation and managed to take some very creative shots.

Peter was a great person to work with, very focused and easy going. He is very professional when it comes to his career and this is shown through his work. Our invoice from Peter came in well under budget. I would recommend Peter to anyone looking for a knowledgeable and very professional videographer / director.”

– Bozidar Stevanovic, Technical Manager, Cryopeak LNG Solutions


“Peter has worked with me on two very important shoots and from the time he arrives until we are finished he is incredibly professional and very easy to work with. His focus on detail is impeccable and Peter always strives to capture the best shot in each situation.

Having someone behind the camera that I can trust is worth its weight in gold. It takes a huge weight off my shoulders when the stakes are high and there is only one opportunity to capture the shot. Peter performs under pressure and his experience shines through when needed the most.

I look forward to many more fun and exciting shoots and would recommend his work to anyone who is looking for a talented and professional videographer.”

– Dustin Hogan, Inspirational Speaker


“We were very impressed with the quality of the video Peter produced for us. He was hardworking throughout the day shooting the video, assuming the role of the director and videographer – telling us exactly the shots he wanted to take, which made it easy for us. He produced a 2 minute clip for us which turned out even better than we imagined. We would very much recommend hiring Peter for your video shoot!”

– Jeremy Gillespie, Owner, Glory Athletics


“Peter recently filmed and edited 51 instructional videos for our online learning business. The results were simply fantastic.

We would not hesitate to recommend Peter and we will definitely use him in the future.”

– Indershini (Desh) Pillay and Marie-Claude Biancardi, Speech-Language Pathologists and Founders, Change Your Accent


“I am happy to recommend Peter. Not only is his quality of work amazing, but his professionalism and patience was exactly what I needed in order to have a smooth production. He offers suggestions and great feedback that is extremely helpful. He is someone you can definitely count on and I could not have asked for a better camera operator to collaborate with. Top notch!”

– Tiffany Toulze, Director, Surviving Woodlands


“Peter recently worked with us to provide video coverage of a gala event at the Chan Centre at UBC. From the time that we first inquired with Peter about being involved, to the final delivery of the footage, we have been totally impressed with his professionalism. Peter is clearly a skilled videographer with excellent equipment and a lot of experience. Just as importantly, Peter is reliable, trustworthy, and communicates well. We particularly appreciated the fact that Peter has a Terms and Conditions document which clearly outlines the specific details of our working relationship, so there was no ambiguity or chance of a misunderstanding. We look forward to working with Peter again in the future.”

– Erik Olson, Recording Engineer, Night Owl Recording


“It was a great experience working with Peter on producing a promotional video for our company. His attention to detail, focus, intuition and experience ensured a professional approach from inception through to production. Place your concept in his hands and he will work with you to deliver a first class product which captures your ideas and your company ethos perfectly. Peter is now our ‘go-to’ videographer for future work.”

– Catherine Scanlan, Co-Founder, Whytes Watches


“Peter was respectful about working within my artistic vision, and when given the freedom, he came up with a brand new creative concept that fit the same vibe and was more practical than my own. He was professional, on time, focused, sensitive to time and budget constraints, and a clear communicator. He managed everyone in the project, including friends and volunteers, with dignity, respect and gratitude. I highly recommend Peter for any film or photography project.”

– Doug Harrison, Lead Singer, Slug Comparison and Fen


“Peter recorded an interview for our organization. He was extremely professional and accommodating throughout the whole process. The quality of the footage he provided was phenomenal and fit the level of professionalism we were looking for. I would certainly recommend his services.”

– Lorna Dumond, Queen’s University


“I hired Peter Wiholm for a project I was doing in Vancouver. He seemed very knowledgeable about camera operations and equipment. He was on time, very professional and even went above and beyond what I had asked for. I would recommend him, and I would use his services again. The final product was of good quality, and his rates were very reasonable. He was also easy to work with on a personal level. I shoot for a living as a reporter in Calgary Alberta, and his equipment was of a higher quality than some that we use for professional TV broadcast.”

– Lyndee Free, Reporter, Shaw TV Calgary


“Peter shot video of two of our biggest events and did a great job under difficult circumstances. Despite loud music, big crowds, limited space and low light he managed to get lots of stylish shots of interesting moments, all the while being discreet as not to disturb the dancers. As an editor he is very skilled at matching the visuals to the feel and tempo of the music, and he’s good at incorporating changes when I suggest them. He is also professional and always delivers the finished video on time, so I’m happy to recommend him as a videographer.”

– JT Gill, DJ, Xclusive DJs Roadshow


“Peter was very easy and a pleasure to work with. We were not only impressed with his creativity and quality of work, we also appreciated how quickly he finished the video project for us. Peter is a quality professional and we are happy to recommend him.”

– Mehrnaz Bassiri, Owner, MyGradeBooster


“We were in need of some video for promotional purposes on our website. In today’s music scene you don’t get a second look without it! After some correspondence with Peter, we quickly realized we found the right person. Till the day of filming you can never truly know how things might work out. After all, in a live situation like the one we wanted filmed the band has to be able to think about the performance rather than how a video might turn out. It takes a professional to leave the performer confident enough to do just that. Peter covers all these bases, Plus! From start to finish we placed our confidence in Mr. Wiholm and for good reason. Need a pro result for your business? Need a pro attitude? Then you need Peter Wiholm.”

– Roger Potter, Lead Singer, Live Rust


“Love love working with Peter! Super professional and worked hard to capture exactly what we were looking for! Recommend him to everyone and does a wonderful job and goes above and beyond!”

– Jessica Cote, Owner, Obviously Chic
