A videographer uses his video camera to record footage for different events.
Examples of events where videographers are common include weddings, documentaries, training videos, commercials, TV shows, infomercials, live events, corporate promotions, etc. Videographers are not only responsible for operating the camera. They must have the skills required for the production of a video, which includes:
- Equipment repair
- Video editing
To become a videographer, pursue a videography education, and attend internships to gain experience. Build a portfolio so your target audience finds you online and starts hiring your services.
