Digital Operator, Photographic / Lighting Assistant
Hello! Im Gaelan a stills and video assistant from Vancouver, Canada on a working visa in London which started in September 2017. Im looking to continue assisting while in London on a wide range of projects. I went to college for a photo specific program in Vancouver which gave me the fundamentals commercial photography working in photo studios. Following graduation, I worked as a freelance assistant, then landed a full time position assisting a photographer at a large Canadian confectionery manufacturer. In addition, I continued my freelance work in Vancouver on evenings and weekends assisting multiple photographers. This allowed me to gain knowledge about various camera systems, work flow, and grip equipment. On set I was able to help photographers manage their time effectively by creating a schedule and keeping them on track, as well as managing equipment so that they had more time for their clients and to focus on the shoot. I love collaborating with others on a wide range or projects and learning new techniques and workflow. In my spare time I enjoy shooting personal projects using many mediums including film. My passion is photographing portraits and landscapes. Thank you very much!
