Paul Cook


I am a freelance lighting cameraman, editor and photographer working across the UK.
I am an experienced TV, corporate and commercial cameraman & filmmaker having worked in several roles, from camera assistant to camera operator.
I have learnt my trade shooting for countless corporate and commercial clients as well as the likes of Channel 4 (‘How Not To Get Old‘, ‘Superscrimpers’ & Gok Live: Stripping for Summer’), BBC (‘Rogue Traders’) and independently. My portfolio includes work for Cadburys, Hard Rock Cafe, Indesit Hotpoint, Monarch Airlines, Volkswagen UK, Thomson Reuters, Corona, Newmarket Racecourses and BACS.

My passion is cinema and outside of my work I like to challenge myself on narrative drama projects as often as possible. Please see my link to ‘Magpie’ – a 1940’s based drama film I successfully crowdfunded in 2015 and am producing in 2016/17 which will be the subject of the masterclasses at The AV Festival.
