Neil Purcell, Lighting Cameraman, London, UK

I am a Freelance Lighting cameraman, London based.

Red-carpetI have worked in broadcast television and films for nearly 25 years, starting at the very bottom as a tea boy and working my up to the heady heights of a Lighting Cameraman in London.

It’s been an interesting journey along the way; from corporate films, children’s and reality TV, comedies and dramas to news, commercials, and feature films and live events, working along the way as a runner, camera assistant, clapper loader, spark (electrician), focus puller, editor, 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.
