Opportunity for Freelance Camera Operators

Please be aware that this position is not a full/part time role. It is a freelance position meaning we will  be in contact with you as and when required.


Application deadline: 29th February 2020

Those who are shortlisted will be invited to a meeting with our team, from 16th March 2020.

Proposed start date: There is no official start date, however work will be ongoing throughout the year.


Applications will only be accepted from candidates who meet ALL the following criteria:

  • Must have at least 2 years industry experience, working within a fast paced production environment. We produce various different types of videos, therefore must be able to frame an interview, and have a creative eye.
  • Must have at least 2 years experience being  a Director of Photography or Camera operator.
  • Having access to your own kit would be desirable, but is not essential.
  • Live within the West Midlands,  have access to and be able to drive
  • Must be able to supply a showreel and evidence of previous work.
  • Must also have good customer service and be able to answer any client questions.



Whilst we have a fabulous in-house team of camera operatives it is always good for us to have a number of freelancers who we can call on if needed. We are looking for an array of ability levels including Camera Operator/or DOP. We are looking for someone who is motivated, self-sufficient and comfortable working on a variety of videos for high end clients. You must be comfortable setting up and recording sound, as well as setting up and lighting various different areas and locations. Additionally being able to frame an interview is a must, making sure you are aware of client needs, such as down the lens etc.

You may also be required to work with our in house team on some shoots, which normally consists of a Producer/Director, Camera Operator and Camera Assistant. However, we do take on shoots that only require one Camera Operator, therefore you should have the ability to work independently.

You must also have access to, and be able to drive your own car. We work nationally so therefore you must be comfortable driving long distances. Start times of shoots vary, some may be early mornings so may require over night stays in various locations.
