About John Hoare
A lighting cameraman and DOP based in London, I've been shooting since 1990 across digital and celluloid and have filmed in some 15 countries.
In 2019-20 I was DoP on 12 episodes of the BBC continuing drama "Doctors", and on Savvas D. Michael's featurefilm The Bezonians (imdb) starring Vinnie Jones, shot in 8k anamorphic. I've worked for brands such as Daily Telegraph, Historic England, Facebook and DHL. I also edit on Final Cut X, Premiere and Resolve.
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 with colourist Kevin Shaw 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.
