About the GTC

The GTC was formed in 1972 and now has over 1,300 members in countries as far afield as Australia, South Africa, the USA, Russia and Singapore. The majority live in the UK, are freelance and work in all aspects of television from corporate production through news and current affairs to documentary and drama.

The GTC is a non-profit making organisation, run by a Council of around 20 volunteer television camera professionals. It is financed partly by members' subscriptions but also by considerable sponsorship from a number of equipment manufacturers and suppliers, both large and small, from throughout the industry. As a result, the GTC offers a channel for manufacturers to consult with end user camera professionals when designing new The Guild of Television Cameramenequipment.

We are not a trade union and we avoid any political involvement, but we are an authoritative source of advice and information on all matters of interest to the camera department.

Our aim is to preserve the professional status of all those earning their living through working with television cameras and to establish, uphold and advance standards and expertise within our profession.

In 2017, GTC members voted to change the full version of its name from The Guild of Television Cameramen to Guild of Television Camera Professionals in order to more accurately reflect its truly inclusive nature.
