Live Handheld Camera & Hard Camera

There is a thrill in capturing a moment that the world has access to seeing live. Or, on super slow-motion replay! It is what camera operators live for. That satisfaction in knowing a defining play or unique perspective came from your camera, your lens, your focus, your skill acquired over years. Many say one of the most difficult tasks of a sports camera operator is to follow a hockey puck moving in excess of 100 mph. You decide!

Reality Television

Reality television programming is a genre that just keeps on coming. Though some debate how much "reality" is actually taking place! It certainly depends on the show and usually pretty obvious.

Mike Plante Productions has worked on several different reality shows which includes "The Bachelor" for a network in Germany. We have also co-produced/edited a pilot reality series to be called "The Shark Wrestler". It was based on a land-based fisherman who catches sharks on the beach with his bare hands. All sharks and other species were safely released and often tagged for scientific research and conservation purposes.

What They Say

Drone Racing League

I've worked with Mike Plante for years on a variety of different projects. He's incredibly hardworking, diverse in his abilities, and always finds a way to add in a little something extra to improve the production. I highly recommend him!

I have had the pleasure to work with Mike Plante since 2013 as a production assistant for Fox Sports Florida fresh out of college. Not only was Mike supportive of my future goals, but his professionalism, willingness to go above and beyond on every shoot, and overall outstanding character was the reason I knew Mike would be the only Cameraman/producer I would want to work with in the future.

Now that I have worked my way up in the ranks and am producing my own show, Mike is the only person I trust with a show that means so much to me. I would recommend Mike to anyone who is looking for someone who not only puts together the best product but also is wonderful to work with.

Top notch video presentations are essential in today's world so that's why we have used Mike Plante Productions for over a decade now. Mike knows how to handle himself on a boat and amazes me with the finished product that he provides for us. He's done owner's manual video presentations, boat tests, factory tours, customer service videos, new model launches, and anything else that we've needed over the years. His credentials and experience say it all but getting to know him by working together takes his qualifications to a much higher level. He truly is the best!

Mike is a talented videographer but more important, resourceful, resilient and unruffled if things go wrong. His confidence is calming when shooting in adverse conditions and his energy unrelenting. I choose Mike over any number of shooters I work with.

Mike Plante

Director of Photography/Camera Op/Producer/Editor/Drone Pilot

Meet Mike

For over 20 years, Mike Plante (Director of Photography/ENG/Hard Camera Operator/Editor/Drone Cinematographer) has been traveling the world doing what he loves. He's been super fortunate to work with tremendous professionals along the way. Whether it is covering professional sports teams for FoxSports Florida, traveling the world with the Drone Racing League, Director of Photography for "Ocean Legacy" fishing show airing Discovery Channel, or covering cruise excursions throughout Hawaii - it's clear that capturing moments is his passion.

Earlier in his career, Mike was a Sports Anchor/Reporter/Videographer at CFN-13 in Orlando, Florida where he won an Emmy Award for his storytelling and shooting skills. Since then, Mike has gone on to win two more Emmy Awards and was nominated for several more. Mike has covered all the major sports including NFL, NBA, MLB, NHL, PGA, NASCAR, NCAA Football and now the Drone Racing League. His most memorable moment was doing a story with new U.S. Open Champion Golfer Payne Stewart at his home. Regrettably, just months later, Mike was the first reporter back at the Stewart home the day he died in 1999 and did a breaking news live shot on CNN.

In 2000, Mike retired from the Sports Anchoring business and launched his own video production company. Today, Mike continues to expand his horizons by working on over 10 different television programs each year. He specializes in Sports DP/ENG/Handheld, Boating programing & projects, and drone cinematography. As Director of Photography, Mike has worked on several fishing series showcasing Yellowfin Yachts, and sports programming such as "Marlins Clubhouse", "Inside the Panthers", and "Marlins Prospect Spotlight" just to name a few. Mike's work has aired on networks such as Discovery Channel, Fox News, FoxSports, ESPN, Tennis Channel, Univision, Telemundo and more!

With a beautiful wife and three awesome kids, Mike is a family man, active in his church, loves the salt life and playing sports.
