What Our Camera Operators Do…
It’s no accident that our videos look the way they do. Our camera-ops are meticulous in all aspects of capturing videos.
Something our camera-ops take very seriously is the way light plays on the subject matter we’re filming. Our crews travel with a small but effective suite of lights that can have a great impact on how our footage looks.
A critical part of high quality video production is having sensational sound. We use a carefully selected range of professional microphones to be discrete and capture top-notch sound.
Lens selection, composition, frame rate, codec, exposure, bit rate, focal length and on and on … camerawork is critical to getting exactly what we want captured for our editors to work with.

In our line of work this is a term that gets misused a lot. Technically, our camera-ops work as the DOP’s on a shoot, but when there is only one camera-op, it’s unusual to describe them as a DOP. But we suppose there isn’t anyone else to do that.
