About Me

Chris Smith

Based in London

I’m a freelance Director of Photography/Lighting Cameraman based in London.

I feel very lucky to work in an area I'm passionate about. I've always been fascinated by great films and TV and knew from an early age that I wanted to work in this field. I now have 15 years experience shooting a wide range of material, from broadcast television to independent films, music promos and corporate communications. I am equipped with a Sony PMW F55 and I’ve also invested in great quality lenses and lighting kit. I am very experienced at operating a Polecam jib, which can accommodate a Canon C300. I find it incredibly rewarding turning my clients’ ideas into reality and get a huge buzz from creating top quality visuals. I have recently become qualified to fly an aerial camera drone and have a Phantom 2 with GoPro 4. The sky really is the limit now! If you’d like to discuss ideas for your next shoot, please get in touch.
