Camera Operator

Photography / Videography

Description

I have shot various motorsport events in a high-intensity setting. The events include the British Rental Kart Championships, British Kart Championships, BRSCC / TCR at Silverstone and the Daniel Ricciardo Series. During the events, I had to operate and transport the camera equipment to ensure I got the shots the director required. I was, therefore, involved both shooting the vehicles in the race (go-karts, touring cars) as well as being the cameraman during the interviews with the drivers and track officials.
