Television Camera Operator / Editor

How to become a Television Camera Operator

A career as a television camera operator/editor can be very exciting! Camera operators learn their trade through either on-the-job training or formal post secondary education. This job is filled with competition and only the best and most determined will succeed, but the results of their efforts are greatly rewarded!

Most videographers find employment with independent television stations, local affiliate stations, large cable networks, or small independent production companies. Depending on the nature of their work, some camera operators get to travel around the world shooting different sporting games, news stories, or events. Others can stay working in the same city for a long period of time if they work for a station with a specific audience, or are shooting for a show that lasts for several seasons.
