About John Hoare
A lighting cameraman based in London, I've been shooting since 1990 across digital and celluloid and have filmed in some 15 countries.
I enjoy the variety of film-making: run-and-gun docs through carefully crafted studio lighting. I'm currently combining a low budget feature film with shooting for brands such as Daily Telegraph, Historic England, Facebook and DHL. I also edit on Final Cut X.
I have been director of photography on award winning drama (The Other Man, Best Short Film, Edinburgh Film Festival) and am always looking out for good scripts.
I am an approved BBC freelancer, and have completed the BBC Safeguarding Trust course.
In Jan 2017 I co-presented a workshop "Shooting for HDR" for the Guild of Television Camera Professionals (of which I'm a member).
I serve the story and love my work.

John is highly professional and delightfully congenial, both are essential qualities for production."
