"Rio has been a really good guy. He's worked really hard learning all the kit and systems. He's very polite and helpful. I look forward to working with him again. I would recommend him to other camera departments."
Haydn Thomas Focus Puller/ Camera operator (The Royals Series 2)

Hi Lovely People!

My name is Rio, I'm 22 and live in South East London and am pursuing my ambition of becoming a cameraman including DIT.

I have been a Camera Trainee on The Royals for E! Network (Series 2) and Love Nina (BBC1).  

I have recently finished a Runner/Camera Assistant role on an ob doc for BBC and have recently undertaken work experience on Beowulf ITV. I spent a fantastic day lying in mud holding the boom, kit management and running!

I've been a Camera Operator for Promax UK and have work experience with Sky, ITN and CBS News.

Being a Trainee would help me gain invaluable experience with camera operators, DOP's, gaffers, AD's and Directors. I want to learn how a production works from the bottom up.

Ever since I found myself spell bound watching The Seven Samurai as a 9 year old, I have been fascinated by TV and film drama. Later, Don McCullin's storytelling through the lens inspired me to look for the truth in every story but I always returned to the Seven Samurai which taught me how photography and the use of light could enhance story-telling to reach a higher level of emotional truth. 

I am passionate about learning the craft of camera operation, lighting and media management and would like the opportunity to demonstrate my skills in this setting!

I have taken the initiative and undertaken work experience as a Runner with So You Wanna Be In TV? and various broadcasters such as ITN, CBS News and Sky.  Although my ultimate ambition has always been to work in TV drama, I felt that news would provide me with a good grounding in camera operation, kit management and lighting under pressure. 

Self-taught in editing with FCP and Adobe Premier Pro, using different cameras including Canon 5D Mark II, 7D and Sony EX3.

Love: Anima, manga, films, gaming, VFX, VR, High End TV and kebabs!
