Join ARRI 1st Seminar and Workshop With ROBIN LAMBERT

I started out as a camera assistant for "MVH" at Pinewood Studios in the late 70s, becoming a camera operator before taking time out to have a "mid-life crisis" at 21.
After a spell in the Royal Marines and the Metropolitan Police, having rid my system of any excess testosterone I returned to camerawork, this time in television.

After a period as a camera operator for Clapperboard Productions in the mid90's I worked as a Location Sound Mixer for German state television whilst waiting for a position as cameraman. Three years later I finally moved backinto the camera department but in the meantime, gained a respect and love of sound recording which I have retained.

For the past 20 years I have worked as a lighting cameraman for various companies, ZDF as "staff" others as a freelance. I have filmed docs for the BBC and FOX, been a "hard news" cameraman for CNN and WTN, filmed drama for ARD and ZDF and lit studio productions for MTV, NBC, ZDF, ARD and others.
In 2002 I was given the chance to co-direct a feature film for TV "Crossfade", which I successfully completed before returning to my first love - camerawork and lighting.

I've lit presentations and press events for Mercedes, Siemens, Airbus and EADS in France, Netherlands, Germany and Russia and am a member of the Society of Television Lighting Designers.
I have presented seminars on lighting all over the world for Arri, Dedolight, KinoFlo and Ianiro and been a guest lecturer at various SAE film schools.

I've written for various trade and consumer magazines, having a regular column in Digital Video magazine for five years until it closed.

Most importantly, I am not half as pleased with myself as this CV might suggest and am constantly learning and improving!
