Yesterday I was filming at the World premiere of Amazing Spider-Man 2 which was shown live on Yahoo (the link above may still be showing the broadcast?)
It was a 5 camera Outside Broadcast with cameras and all technical facilities provided by Video Europe and the broadcast production by Sassy Films. I was on the red carpet with Will Best doing interviews with the stars of the film.
I am a Freelance Lighting cameraman living in London.
I have worked in broadcast television, films and corporate videos for nearly 25 years, starting at the very bottom as a tea boy and working my way up to the heady heights of Lighting Cameraman in London, working all over the UK, Europe and the rest of the world.
It's been an interesting journey: from corporate films to news, commercials, children's and reality TV to feature films, working along the way as a runner, clapper loader, spark(electrician), focus puller, camera operator and lighting cameraman.
I have met and learnt from all sorts of fascinating people in my working career, many of whom are firm friends to this day.
