Hi I’m Kristian Barrass, an experienced and creative freelance lighting TV cameraman. I’m situated on the outskirts of Hull in East Yorkshire, in the North of the UK, but offer location filming and editing services across the North / Midlands and whole UK.
With 15 years of broadcast TV experience, I’ve worked on a wide variety of network and regional programmes including lifestyle, observational, light-entertainment, current affairs, news and sport for all of the main broadcasters and numerous leading independent production companies.
I specialise in location filming and I'm equally happy to work as a single-man operator or with a sound recordist. I’m accustomed to working to tight deadlines, often in difficult situations whilst maintaining a creative, sensitive and professional approach.
I am also able to work as a self directing cameraman (self-shooter)- as illustrated by my work on BBC1 primetime series "Car Wars" produced by Mentorn.
I offer a range of shooting formats(which I own/maintain) including Panasonic P2 HD (AJ-HPX3000) and DVCAM DSR570(4:3/16:9).
All shooting options come with comprehensive sound and lighting kits as well as use of crew vehicle.
I am an approved BBC, ITV AND Sky Sports supplier
I am covered by £5 million of public liability insurance.
