About Roger Edwards Freelance Lighting Cameraman

I'm a freelance lighting cameraman and Sony FS7 owner, with considerable experience across the whole spectrum of broadcast and corporate television. I'm very easy going, enthusiastic and reliable.

I would describe myself as an "all rounder", equally at home shooting well considered and creatively lit situations as with the camera on my shoulder "ob doc" style.

I’m very used to making quick decisions and adapting to events as they unfold. I’m fully conversant with most HD formats.

Being "film trained" I have a wide range of filters to achieve various "looks" and make creative use of an extensive range of lighting (a particular skill). With bases in the West Country, Bristol, Wales, Manchester and London I’m quite happy to work throughout the UK and abroad.
