high-end climbing camera guys

Postby crackroach » Thu Jun 19, 2008 11:27 am

So I need some advice for a project I'm coordinating for work, which involves a BBC/Discovery Channel documentary. Who are the best "on-rope" camera guys within the area (meaning UT, CO, AZ, NV)?

If anyone has recs...please feel free to post. If you have contact info...even better....PM me.

In particular, anyone have contact info for Mike Call?

Just a clarification...it's just video work. I wouldn't have had to ask for a list of world-class climbing still-photogs that post on this site!

photographer = still photos
cinematographer = film (analog, dying medium)
videographer = video (roped or otherwise)

Yes DB...should have been more clear....I just said "camera guy" and "bbc documentary." Not exactly specific. I need a climbing/high-angle videographer!

c-roach, let me know if you still need help. i'm sort of a bottom feeder when it comes to this kind of thing but i do have a lot of practical-type advice. i worked as a stuntman for another BBC show a couple of years back. i might be able to give you some names of various moab tossers who do a lot of high-angle work for the movies. mostly local guides.

Tim Wagner can be counted on for advice and/or quality work. MC will know his contacts.
