Hello, I’m Peter Baker, a professional voiceover with over 30 years of experience - a former BBC TV news presenter and the voice of thousands of TV & radio campaigns as well as corporate and promotional films for large organisations and broadcasters. I've also voiced many audio books on a variety of subjects. I have my own broadcast quality studio with Neumann microphones and I can provide wav, aif or mp3 files at any data rate. I am also a broadcast trained and experienced audio and video editor, using Adobe Audition and Premiere Pro software. So I can offer to you the whole package; voicing your script, editing the audio and taking your visuals and editing a video to professional standards. I work fast and efficiently, 7 days a week, to offer you a fully professional service. I will re-record any sections you are not 100% happy with at no extra charge until you are satisfied. The rate you’ll pay for voiceovers is for voicing your script, editing mistakes and major breaths out and technically optimising with all rights bought out in all media, even broadcast TV & radio. I look forward to working with you! Best wishes Peter Baker UK Based Professional Voiceover
