ABOUT - FREELANCE LIGHTING CAMERAMANLighting Cameraman London - Film Maker - Director of Photography
Hello, my name is Richard and I work across London and Surrey as a freelance lighting cameraman and editor.
I have over 15 years experience in Lighting, Sound, and Video Editing, with credits in BBC, ITV, Channel Four and SKY. I studied Professional Broadcasting and Technical Operations at the industry recognised Ravensbounre College. Where upon graduating I worked on live television programmes such as ‘Top Of The Pops’, ‘Big Brother’ and ‘The Salon’ as a Studio Camera Operator and assistant.
Then moving into drama and features as a focus puller working on long standard TV drama favourites such as ‘The Bill’ on ITV. I moved through the ranks to become a regular crew member and then Second Unit Camera Operator. I am now available for broadcast television and corporate video productions.
I own a Sony FS7 camera along with a good selection of Lighting and Sound equipment. All this filming kit can be hired along with me for any Video job.
Working as a Lighting Camera Operator and Director of Photography across a wide range of broadcast television programs and corporate video.
My job has seen me travel around the globe and frequently filming away in places like France, Sweden, Italy, Thailand, Bangladesh, Spain and Germany.
In 2014 I set up Video Production Company Platform 80 TV alongside other professional freelance camera crews to extend the services I have to offer.
I live in South London with my wife, two baby boys and dog Chester. And when not behind the camera lens, I enjoy cooking up asian food and getting muddy in the garden!
