Sony FS7 Camera Operator in Cardiff, south Wales
Since graduating from Cardiff Metropolitan's Sport Broadcast MSc in 2019, Greg has worked as a freelance camera operator in both commercial and broadcast.
Although based in Cardiff, Greg's work has taken him from Pembrokeshire to London, from Caernarfon to Aberdeen.
GC Media owns and operates a broadcast-standard cinematic camera, the Sony FS7. This camera is 4K capable and shoots beautiful slow-motion footage at 180fps. We also own a Sony A7iii DSLR camera, which produces broadcast-standard footage (including 4K) that looks stunning on social media channels, to ensure we have the flexibility for all situations.
Other equipment includes an LED lighting kit, a Zhiyun Crane Gimbal, GoPro's, audio equipment (including wireless Sennheiser lavalier, Sony shotgun and reporter microphones), portable green-screen and an autocue.
As part of his MSc, Greg produced a documentary about Pontypool RFC's recent journey, entitled 'One Game'. The documentary resulted in Greg being nominated for the Student of the Year award at the Welsh Media Awards 2020, due to take place in 2021 due to the Coronavirus pandemic. It also resulted in Greg winning the Dean's Award for the best taught postgraduate dissertation in the Cardiff School of Sport.
Greg is also capable of producing work in Cymraeg, having produced complete packages for S4C and Plaid Cymru. Greg is a learner but is proficient with the language.
