Elliot Hornell, cameraman


Hello, I'm Elliot, a freelance lighting cameraman, based in Aberdeen, Scotland. I have worked across Scotland, throughout the UK, and worldwide, in TV and Video Production for over 20 years. Therefore, during this time, I've gained extensive experience across a wide range of broadcast and corporate productions.

With recent credits including BBC Panorama, Channel 4 Dispatches and STV News I strive to consistently deliver creative material, to a high standard, that meet the particular production requirements.

Client Testimonials

Bill Shand, STV

Hiring freelance staff for the first time is always a risk as you are never sure what you are going to get. This was certainly not the case with Elliot. The quality of his work, both as an Editor and Camera Operator is first class. When he comes in to work for STV he fits right in with our way of working and is very popular with all who work at STV. I never have any hesitation in hiring Elliot as I know I am going to get a first rate performer.

Patricia Macleod, Midas Media

I have hired Elliot as a cameraman both onshore and offshore for several years, for broadcast and for corporate work.  He is often the only crew on location and I totally trust him with our clients.  When we work together as a team for broadcast, I find him a complete pleasure to work with.  He gives valuable and creative input on location, he takes responsibility for operating safely and he has a lovely manner with contributors.

Ade Thomas, Green TV

Elliot is an extremely professional, creative and hard working cameraman. He goes the extra mile to ensure your production exceeds expectations. He is also a pleasure to work with. I would, and do, highly recommend him.
