Re: Videographer As Crew

In my experience it is actually really difficult to get good video out on the water, at least compared with still photography where you can control lighting and surroundings to some extent - even if only for a fraction of a second.

A really good on-water videographer is a rare beastie indeed, needing to tackle continously-changing lighting conditions and surroundings essentially outside of their control. Certainly it can be done - it just takes lots of skill and very expensive equipment to avoid hours of useless footage - and makes still photography look easy.
