    About me

    Experienced Cinematographer/ lighting cameraperson (camera operator) and Editor (Final Cut, Premiere) with own C300 and 5D MKII set-up ready to work on any film/TV project you may have from short fiction to music video to corporate promos.

    I am a First class honors graduate from London Met's Film & Broadcast Degree Program. Camera operator/ lighting camera-woman from the London area; as an operator I've shot for Channel 5 and BBC World News Channel on location in England and abroad. In addition I’ve shot for various global corporate clients, including operating for Italian Oscar documentary shortlisted DP Luca Fantini on a fashion promo for Italian label 'Freddy', plus directing the photography of promo shoots for clients such as E4, Ray-Ban and Olympics partners GL Events.

    I am passionate about injecting my promo, interview and corporate-style work with a truly filmic quality, and am well versed in cameras including Canon’s C100, C300, XF305, Sony Fs700, EX3, and all RED cameras, including the new Epic Dragon. I am also a highly experienced editor and can work in-house or satellite.

    I travel extensively with my work and have shot in Berlin, Sweden, Dubai, Istanbul, Abu Dhabi, Saudi Arabia and Bahrain.

    Creative, intelligent and flexible to any project, I'm looking to work on any film, TV and music video projects you may have slated for production, and also have much experience in producing web content. I specialise in shooting and editing with a view to a quick, visually arresting turnaround. Please visit michelletofi.com for more about me.
