Peter Dyson & Son. Gunsmith - Portrait Documentary (2016)

Idea // Peter Dyson has been in the gunsmithing business for his whole life. He went from doing the odd job fixing small parts on friends guns to opening a shop with his wife and creating a worldwide gunsmithing business all operated from his home in the UK. He now employs a workshop of talented gunsmiths and travels the world buying and selling firearms.

Production Information // After my first Portrait documentary 'Lotus' received a great response from audiences, we decided on creating more over the next few years focusing on great stories of individuals from around the world. Peter's story is great because his craft has so much backstory and heritage. It's a craft that can span generations. We spent two days with Peter at his home in Yorkshire as he told us about his life and business.
