As a UK Unit Stills Photographer I work on television and feature film productions producing images for their publicity campaigns. Working directly with producers, production companies to specialist PR agencies and publicists. Recent credits include BBC’s ‘Call The Midwife’, Sky’s ‘Lucky Man’ and Channel 4’s ‘The Interrogation of Tony Martin’.
The stills photographer's job is to capture stills from the film shoot that capture the story of the scene and strong portraits of each character, by themselves and in groups. The stills photographer is also responsible for documenting the behind the scenes and capturing the story behind the camera.
This usually involves capturing shots of the director interacting with the cast on and off set and to documenting heads of departments. Don’t confuse the role of a unit photographer with the EPK team. The EPK team are geared towards capturing interviews of cast and generally behind the scenes video of the film set and what’s going on behind the main camera. All of this material gathered during principal photography is so important in marketing a film and can help grow an audience.
Having an experienced stills photographer on set can make or break the commercial success of a film and secure the best position on capture the right angles.
