Will Milner
Lighting Cameraman

 

Will has been working as a Cameraman for twelve years, based in the South East. His main areas of work are documentary and factual entertainment, often with an emphasis on making programmes in difficult environments.


Driven by the unique opportunity we have to drop into all pockets of life and observe with a level of access denied to most. I have a diplomatic approach and aim to bring a calm but focused outlook to the often challenging filming environments we work in.
