I'm an experienced and creative lighting ENG/PSC cameraman and CAA licensed aerial drone operator based between Leeds and Hull. I cover the whole of the North and Midlands.
I am also available to work anywhere in the UK.
I have worked on a wide variety of network observational, lifestyle, light-entertainment and current affairs programmes as well as sport and news for all of the main broadcasters and independent production companies.
I specialise in location shoots including picture and sound aquisition, with or with-out a sound recordist, especially working to tight deadlines and often in difficult situations but always in a creative, sensative and professional manner.
I began my career as a multi-skilled operator at ITV Yorkshire working on news, sport and current affairs before going on to cover a 20 day per month contract for Sky Sports for 5 years as a lighting cameraman working on various sporting programmes both in the UK and Europe.
I went freelance in 2003 and have since gone on to build up a varied and prestigious broadcast and corporate client list.
Covering sport has remained a major source of my work and Sky Sports and Premier League Productions are my main clients in that area.
I currently film features/packages and match coverage for the Super League rugby, Super Sunday, Football League and Rugby Union in HD as well as as Soccer AM, Soccer Saturday and Sky Sports News. I regularly work as a lighting camera operator across the North and Midlands for Premier League Productions.
I am also able to work as a self directing cameraman (self-shooter) - as illustrated by my work on BBC1 primetime series "Car Wars" produced by Mentorn.
I offer a range of shooting formats(which I own/maintain) including a SONY PXW-FS7 MARK II 4K SUPER 35MM CMOS SENSOR CAMERA WITH 18-110MM F4 SERVO ZOOM LENS and a Panasonic AJ-HPX3000 P2 HD shoulder mounted camera with a Canon HJ22 lens.
All shooting options come with comprehensive sound and lighting kits as well as use of crew vehicle.
I am a CAA licensed aerial drone operator and offer the use of a DJI Phantom4 Pro+ drone with 4K/HD capable camera.
I am an approved BBC, ITV AND Sky Sports supplier
I am covered by £5 million of public liability insurance.
With 20 years TV experience I've built up wide network of freelance contacts and Barrass TV Crews Ltd can solve your complete crewing needs as we can also provide sound recordists and additonal camera operators, production crew and assistants if required.
I am always open to negotiation in terms of rates, especially for longer assignments.
