I've been involved in shooting news for almost two decades. I spent several years at CNN, in Atlanta, covering everything from the 2000 election recount to the international custody battle over Elián González.
I followed that with a stint at WTIC in Hartford, CT, covering local news, and driving the microwave truck.
Now that I am a freelancer in the Boston area, I love to be called to shoot stories in my hometown. From growing up here, I have an added depth of knowledge of the area that informs my work, and brings an added joy and poignancy to the work.
I had the great pleasure of shooting for EuroNews on Election Night, 2012, at Obama HQ in Chicago. The version up now is a re-edit of what originally aired, but still includes some of my shots.
Brian Henderson (DP)
Director of Photography
I've worked in TV and video production since 1995.
Since 2005, I've been a freelance D.P. (Director of Photography - i.e. cameraman) based in Boston. Previously, I worked in news, where I learned to work fast, light when necessary, and shoot for the edit.
My career has given me a wide range of hands-on experience in many aspects of video production. My specialties: DP, lighting cameraman, shooting video, lighting, ENG audio, linear and nonlinear video editing, field producing, still photography.
I've shot all kinds of projects including documentaries; network programs and news; live shots; travel, home improvement, reality, fishing, and cooking shows; as well as surgeries; corporate videos; and multi-camera events. I also work as a field audio technician.
Note that I can light and shoot for many different styles. Often I do all the camera work, lighting, and sound while working with a producer.
I am comfortable working as a one man band, in a small crew, or with a large group. I am familiar with nearly every camera available from high end full-size broadcast HD cameras to DSLRs and HD palm-corders.
