On the Irregular with Java Bere
Interview with Lyndsey Harris - TV Camera Op and Photographer
Show Notes

This week I’m chatting to TV Camera Operator and photographer Lyndsey Harris.

As a camera op, Lyndsey has worked on productions such as Coronation Street, Wimbledon and, in my opinion, the most exciting of all, Stars in Their Eyes

When she’s not filming, Lyndsey captures the world around her with her camera and a sharp documentary eye, honing in on the moments we often miss.

We talk about growing up as a mixed race child on an all white council estate in Birmingham, the film that was the catalyst for her pursuing a career in visuals, and being a woman in an industry historically dominated by white men. A large theme was the internal battle between her drive and passion and her, often debilitating, anxiety and imposter syndrome.

Welcome to episode eight. May I introduce you to my dear friend, talented photographer and one of the oddaprents to our children, Lyndsey Harris,

You can find Lyndsey’s photography work on instagram @allfromthelefteye.
