bob mcgowan - camera operator I've been working in film for some 10+ years, most of this time I have been a freelance cameraman and editor or D.O.P I've worked on all sorts of projects including: live events, documentary, short film, loads of music videos, advertising, corporate and green-screen work.

Having edited so many projects I understand what an editor needs to construct a visual story on his or her timeline, personally i think all camera operators should know how to edit a story together.

Not only have I produced my own material, but have helped shape and advise others on the best methods of getting what they are looking for in a visual concept, particularly using green-screen work in studio based environments, here I have advised on lighting, camera movements and logistics. I have a genuine fascination in digital camera production and post techniques and if I'm not researching a new project then I'm trying to help out on someone else's.

I also like experimental film using any new materials and processes for creating new camera rigs and grip, methodology for seeking effective ways of creating that certain look generally on a low budget.

I would really like to expand my 3D live video portfolio -working with stereo cameras was a big step and seeing the images brought to life and working that depth of material was fascinating, if you have any ideas and want to experiment then please get in touch.

In my spare time I enjoy cinema, generally independent film rather than Hollywood stuff. I'm also an amateur aviator and have successfully gained my Club Pilot status in paragliding and also fly paramotors from various locations.

Basic pricing structure for a day's shoot is £380 which includes all my kit (except jib). Additional expenses are extra and anything beyond a day is always negotiable. Contact me. Robert McGowan CV1
