Fraser is a London based cinematographer with DP and lighting camera operator credits in TV, branded content, music videos and short films.


BACKGROUND
I grew up in the north east of Scotland where I discovered my passion for image-making while experimenting with film photography. I started my career as a music, portrait and commercial photographer before having my first taste of filmmaking as a unit stills photographer on music video sets. I gained further on-set experience as a camera trainee, focus puller, B camera operator, spark and gaffer for a few years before focusing in solely on my work as a cinematographer and director of photography during my MA in Film and in the years which have followed. I love my role as a DP. I love pre-production: making creative decisions and finding unique ways to tell the story. I love being on set with talented cast and crew members working together to realise the vision of the brand or director.
