Christopher Sharman is a freelance cinematographer based in London and Norwich, UK

 

A former ITV trainee, Chris joined the BBC in 2002 and shot countless hours of news and short-form current affairs, eventually progressing onto network feature documentaries.

 

Since leaving to become freelance in 2007, Christopher has continued his documentary work for the BBC and many other national and international broadcasters.  He has also transitioned into narrative work, commercials and music promos and has filmed throughout the UK and Europe, as well as further afield in the USA, Canada, Africa and Asia in recent years.

 

He has been selected by BAFTA for the emerging talent programme BAFTA Crew 2016.
