Voice Description

Peter Baker is a highly experienced and professional UK based voiceover and is very fast and reliable. He has a resonant, commanding, compelling male voice, but flexible with character voices if required as well. Contact: mail@peterbakervoiceover.com He is also an experienced video editor so can sync VO to your video if required. You can direct him via ipDTL or Video Skype.

He has broadcast experience on both TV and radio with the BBC and many commercial stations. This means he can offer the standard "BBC News" style as well as a commanding corporate feel if required. Peter can also speak in a casual style but still maintaining the resonance of his clear, engaging tenor voice.

His broadcast studio has Neumnann U87 microphones, a Yamaha digital mixer and editing is done by Adobe Audition software by Peter or one of his two assistants.

He also offers in-vision TV presentation in his own broadcast quality TV facility with Autocue. Here is an example: https://vimeo.com/114968107

My Voice Experience

I’m a former BBC presenter on both radio as well as TV reading news bulletins. Recent voiceovers have included commercials for Jaguar, and corporate narrations for McDonald's, Premier Foods, and Siemens as well as zillions of less well known organisations.

I have been a voiceover since 1974 so I have a very, very long list of clients!

Commercials range from radio promos to national campaigns.

I love the work as I help make often dry, uninspiring scripts really come alive! I really try to get into each character and believe in what I'm saying.

My Training

I was sponsored through Bath University by the BBC - one of only two that year with a degree course in Audio and Electronic Engineering.

I have attended courses in acting and voice projection.

My Studio Equipment

I started radio engineering for the BBC in 1974 and have continuously updated my equipment and expertise. Today I have my own broadcast quality studio with a Neumann U87 and Neumann a TLM 103 microphone. You can direct me via ipDTL Link here: http://www.bbcvoice.com/contactme.html or Video Skype (Skype name: peter, baker)

I have a Yamaha LS9 digital mixer and am very experienced with Adobe Audition software for waveform editing and optimisation.

I also have my own Chromakey studio for green screen "In-Vision" recordings. Reading your script from my own Autocue / teleprompter, I offer video files so you can use me as a "TV newsreader" if required.

My skills include video editing using Premiere Pro so if you give me backgrounds, I can complete the whole keying process if required.

Additional Skills

My fees include recording, editing, optimization and delivery of all files, and all rights to the recording in all media for ever. I don't have any pesky money-grubbing agent, so the fees are reasonable to direct clients.

I always offer new clients a free demo of their actual script to help them make up their mind. Please listen to my demo, and I hope to work with you soon.

Best wishes
