Frank Considine is one of the top factual camera operators in the business. He takes great professional pride in producing the best possible results. I have worked with Frank for the best part of 20 years, from the war in Kuwait to hunting international criminals. I’ve been privileged to be alongside a great cameraman and a first-class colleague
In all my twenty years managing BBC Newsnight’s filming, it has not been possible to find a more positive, reliable, self-motivated, resourceful, cameraman-producer than Frank.
