Laura's story:
Up and Coming Camerawoman

For 3 years I have worked as a freelancer in the camera department of television and film in Scotland and throughout Europe. My first year included a commission from BBC Scotland to make a 30 min documentary based on my university dissertation The Bad Guy through my own production company D14 Productions in which I took on the positions of producer & Director of Photography. Since then I have been making a stint on the world of film, starting out as a camera trainee and progressing to my current position of 2nd AC on a variety of indie films, campaigns, commercials and photographic projects throughout the UK, France & Denmark. 

I am currently seeking out more opportunities to shoot, preferably documentary work & junior Shooting PD roles, to showcase my strong ability to work well behind the lens. I have a great eye, a lot of technical and artistic knowledge, a calming demeanour on set and a real passion for creating still and moving images; the only thing missing is an opportunity to show it.
