The goal for every video is to create visually stunning content that will leave an impact on your target audience. As important as it is to have the best talent in front of the camera, it’s equally important to ensure that you have the ideal visionary for your project behind the camera. The creative artist who is operating the camera on a shoot is called a cinematographer, they are also often referred to as the DP, Director of Photography, Shooter, or Videographer. No matter what you call them this person is going to be vital to the look and feel that is captured for your spot.

A director of photography does so much more than operate the camera between the director calling “action!” and “cut!” The cinematographer will discuss with the director the ideal camera and lighting equipment to be used on set, camera techniques, and what shots will ensure proper coverage of the shoot for your editor. All of these elements will greatly influence how your audience will perceive your story. An experienced cinematographer will design your project to be visually striking and compelling.
When hiring a cinematographer, you should consider your guidelines for the style and vision of the project, seeking out the person that will exceed those expectations. Different types of cameras will give you different looks and will cost different amounts to rent. Camera settings are complicated and it’s important that your cinematopher knows how to set up the camera properly to get the best looking footage for your project. You should always look at your cinematographers previous work to ensure you like what they have shot in the past and that they are the best choice for your project.
