It's All About Networking

So today i am off to Wichester to see another cameraman who owns his own Steadicam rig. Why? well it's something that i cannot offer to my clients because i don't have one. He, on the other hand has one, but no cameras. It's a simple link up between two freelancers who could complement each others business in a way to satisfy both of our clients.

This is what being a freelance cameraman is all about. The old saying goes that it's not what you know but who you know, and this is a valuable lesson to anyone who wants to be a freelance in any sphere of business, but especially in the TV Industry.

So off i go down the M3 for an agreeable lunch with a bloke i don't know but, hopefully we will be doing some business together in the future.
