If anyone is looking for an experienced Director of Photography or camera operator then please feel free to get in touch.
A bit of background; I've been working as a camera op for 8 years within the industry, working on broadcast programmes (Songs of Praise, One Show, Dispatches to name a few) as well as numerous corporate, music and promotional videos for a variety of clients and companies. The last two years has seen me filming on Canon DSLR's and really learning a new digital craft, I've recently finished filming a commercial project for McLaren Automotive and more recently been working with the Canons new beast, the C300. In the 8 years that I've been working, I've also completed my degree in the field, gaining a BSc with honours where I specialised in TV and Film.
I own a host of grip equipment (dolly, JIB, glidetrack, lighting - dedos to 3k+ etc) as well as having access to a number of different cameras that record a number of formats. I've also been operating Glidecams and Stedicams for over 5 years. My rates are extremely competitive, starting at £220 per 8 hr day as an operator, or (with a basic DSLR rig set up) £400 per 8hr day, I quote per job and price always depends on what kit is required. I don't charge the earth for the Stedicam, often this is dependant on its use during an 8hr day and I will quote a price accordingly.
No project is too big or small as I have supplied MiniDV cameras to the smallest of shoots to setting up multicamera rigs and lighting for large events, so if you're in need of a professional camera crew, camera operator or Director of Photography, I do hope you will get in touch. Please feel free to browse my website, there is a small amount of work here to which I have the rights to broadcast via the net, the link is below (Tom Blount - Director of Photography) or visit tbpfilms.com.
