Daniel Haggett

London based Lighting Cameraman / DoP


I have been working in television since 2000 and since then have worked on a range of programmes from documentaries to reality shows and branded content.  I have worked with large crews with up to 50 people, as well as working alone or with a tiny crew.

I began working as an assistant avid editor before moving into camera work, so feel I have a good understanding of story telling and can get the shots necessary to make life easy in the  edit.

I feel I am good at making people feel relaxed in front of the camera, whether they are seasoned presenters, or nervous first timers.

I have worked in a variety of countries and environments: from the arid heat of Syria to the monsoon rains of Malaysia to the cold tundra of Alaska and the Yukon.  I know how to look after myself and the kit in most conditions.

I love working as a cameraman, the places you visit and the people you meet.  I still love travelling, even if it does mean lugging lots of gear about and filling in carnets.

I am a British Citizen with a vaild "I" visa for the USA.

I speak bad Japanese and even worse French.
