Freelance & Broadcast Programmes

Whether you are a fellow freelancer or production company, feel free to get in touch as I am always happy to collaborate on interesting projects.


Hello, I'm Ricky Sargent and am available for booking as a freelancer or on a short contract basis for broadcast programmes.
My roles can include Director of Photography, Camera Operator, Assistant Operator and DJI Ronin Operator. I too have operated Pan/Tilt heads... I am equally happy arranging filming days if required.

I'm happy to work on development, filming of Pilots and taster tapes in exchange for an agreement of contract following commission.


I'm competent with a variety of camera models including the Arri Alexa XT, Canon C100, Canon C300, Sony FS700, Blackmagic URSA/mini and the New Sony PXW-FS7.
I have owned the Sony PXW-FS7, its a great camera and incredibly versitile however I have swapped them for two Sony A7S mk2's because the FS7 was overkill for the sorts of work we do. Normally a camera such as the FS7 would only be used for TV Broadcast/documentary where we don't do that at our facility.
