Camera Trainee

  • Location: Birmingham
  • Career stage: Early
  • Freelancer: Available

I have 6 years worth of experience working in the camera department as an operator and assistant using most TV and digital film cameras. I have a lot of experience in outside broadcast on feature films, promos, music videos and commercials. I am familiar with a multitude of lighting set-ups including studio lighting arrays and interview scenes. I have a wide knowledge of grip including cable dollies, a variety of sliders, tracks and jibs. I am confident across all modern camera formats especially HD, UHD and 4K set ups. I also work happily as a camera assistant, digital imaging technician, and digital loader in the field and studio environments on a wide variety of broadcast quality formats. I graduated in 2012 from Staffordshire University with a 1st class BSc degree in Film Production Technology. From this course I acquired skills in video and image production. The course provided experience in the use of state-of-the-art HD digital cinema cameras, lighting equipment and grip gear. After discovering I was a tech at heart, I quickly found a passion for digital workflows. I enjoy my work immensely and bring my skills and enthusiasm to every shoot. Combined with a professional approach, and a friendly personality make me an asset to your crew or production. I enjoy getting involved in any production no matter how small. I am an effective communicator with precise attention to detail. I am very self-motivated, well organized, punctual and an excellent multi-tasker. I work well as part of a team and I’m comfortable in fast paced environments. I am used to working odd hours and have always been flexible with my availability. Working nights and long shifts are not a factor that deters me from giving the role and any shoot my full attention.
