Course Overview

About this Course:

This course is FOR the newbie who wants to make a career as a videographer. This course is NOT for intermediate and advanced students - although intermediate students will find useful information throughout the series. Also this series is about how to shoot professional video. We are not covering editing.

Do you love creating video? Do you want to learn what it takes to make a career as a videographer?

While technology changes the basics of visual storytelling stay the same. Those basics include effective camera operation creative lighting and clean audio recording. You'll learn all of that with this course. Believe it or not many people already earning a living as videographers don't have these basics mastered so you can gain an advantage by learning what I teach you. After you have the knowledge and practice your craft you can work as a freelance camera operator works at a news station or a production company. You can even start your own production company!

NOTE: Since many jobs in the video industry are run and gun or ENG - Electronic News Gathering - we will be teaching camcorder type cameras with servo zoom lenses and NOT be discussing DSLR cameras with fixed focal length prime lenses. Also we will not be teaching stabilizing devices sliders jibs or drones.
