In the shoes of a cameraman

Get in the shoes of the cameraman in charge of the HD backstage movie and learn more about his job.

“Since I have been working with MAKE UP FOR EVER, I have found the same atmosphere on each shooting: a mix of seriousness, creativity and fun.
For the HD shooting I was in charge of the backstage video. My job consisted in catching different moments all day long to build a story with the different shoots.

The task is very challenging because I have to be discrete and at the same time everybody sees me with my camera on the shoulder. During the HD shooting the challenge was to make the model feel comfortable because the camera was very intrusive -all my shots were focused on her- and she had to trust me to get the best emotions.

Usually a shooting lasts the entire day and the first step is always to do the model’s makeup. I took advantage of that moment to make my testings with the cam. / to set and test the camera.

After the makeup session, the shooting took place in the studio, the model was standing up and I remained in the background and continued to catch beautiful shoots until the most important moment: when the lead photographer and all the staff caught the right picture, the right moment, the right emotion. At this time, we felt a sort of vibration: the great vibration of success.

The pictures were in the box, the movie too.
