About Ryan Blackwood Lighting Cameraman

I am an experienced camera operator and a BAFTA New Talent-winning filmmaker. I offer over eight years of experience filming for broadcast, brands and documentary. As a freelance camera operator I have worked with Channel 4 News, Vice, ITN and Al Jazeera.

I travel UK wide with my own Sony FS7 camera, lighting kit and 4X4 vehicle. My corporate clients include the UK Government, Heineken, Dell, Red Bull, Save the Children, Adobe, KFC, Visit Britain, British Gas and Scottish Water. Commercial UAV drone services will be available from March 2019.

I pride myself on my professionalism and creative approach to briefs, and love the variety of different shoots. I am an experienced interviewer, dealing with sensitive subjects and directing on-camera talent. My experience allows for flexibility and good humour in the face of changing demand. I also bring editor’s perspective and a ‘can-do’ attitude to everything I shoot.

As an Edinburgh-based lighting cameraman (and editor), I have an extensive list of credits and across TV, documentary, corporate and events.

I am experienced working directly for marketing campaign managers, and have delivered complete films for national tourism organisations, businesses and charities.

I have a broad range of specialist areas, both very familiar with documentary and wildlife filmmaking but equally at home wearing a suit to produce corporate films for major financial institutes.

Glasgow Camera Operator - Showreels
I am a versatile camera operator (and editor) working across the UK with a range of formats as well as steadicam and multi-camera set-ups.

Keeping pace with the talent I have harnessed-up, skied and ran in-chase after world-class freerunners. I have hiked up uninhabited islands and directed talent on summits, in boats and in boardrooms across Europe.

Whatever the content I pride myself on my energy, professionalism and creative approach to briefs. I have a passion for storytelling – revealing characters, showcasing businesses and documenting the natural world.
