How to be a successful freelance news cameraman – with Paul Martin

Paul Martin is a freelance cameraman based in the south of England. I’ve known Paul for a number of years though sadly we still haven’t had a chance to down a pint together.


He is a brilliant bloke, with a cracking sense of humour, who came up the hard way in TV news after leaving the army and teaching himself to shoot.

In this two-part interview we discuss a wide spectrum of subjects including the secrets of successful freelancing, the state of the industry and what the hell is happening in Zimbabwe.

You can listen to part 1 and 2 of our interview below or download on iTunes here.
