Freelance Roles

When it comes to videography, Sharon doesn’t over or undersell her skills and abilities. It’s more important that her clients get the right camera type and skill level for the type of videography that’s needed. After all, does a business interview require the skills of a feature film Director of Photography, and his/her 8K camera, when the finished video will live on a company website? Probably not.

However, are you trying to recruit new talent or customers to your business? How should the viewer feel when seeing the footage and the video? It may require specific camera moves that a standard camera on a tripod can’t do. More equipment, or specialized lighting may be needed for the environment. After asking the right questions, the right camera and operator can be identified. That may mean bringing on another camera person and their gear. In that case, Sharon may serve as the field producer for the shoot.

The rates quoted for freelance videography  are for Sharon and HER equipment. If it’s determined that something/someone else is needed for the job, the costs may vary, depending on what is needed, and the person’s rate and their equipment rate. Sharon is also comfortable serving in a freelance capacity as a camera operator, without her gear. She has extensive experience with live events such as meetings, conferences, concerts, events and parades.
