Manchester Camera Operator

Cal Thomson

Manchester based lighting camera operator and adventure film-maker.

I have built up camera operating and lighting skills over the past 6 years whilst freelancing all over the world for a variety of brands and commercial clients.

I have experience in Branded Content, Broadcast, TV Commercials, Music Videos, Short Films and Live Events. Clients include ITV, Endemol Shine North, Fremantle Media, New Balance, NHS, Mini Cooper, Asda, SPAR, British Cycling, Fever Tree to name a few.

I have great relationships with Provision and Procam so hiring in any extra kit for a production isn't a problem. View my extensive in house camera kit list here.

I am also the co-host of industry professional podcast 'The Creative Scramble'. We interview musicians, film-makers, directors and agency CEOs to dissect and understand the journey of a creative entrepreneur. Check us out on iTunes.
