Tom Cottam


Hey there, I’m Tom Cottam. Welcome to my website!

I’m a freelance camera and jib operator as well as an occasional lighting technician with over 4 years in the industry.

I have other useful skills such as glidecam and gimbal operating and video editing.

I’m well travelled and have experience working all around the UK and Europe as well as some pretty exotic places further afield including New Zealand, Australia and the United States filming events, documentaries, short films, sports, cars, bikes, weddings, interviews, promotional videos and lots more.

I also speak fluent French and Greek!
