About me
Working in commercials since 2018, developing my eye and talent as a 1st AC and camera op. Creating a variety of campaigns – including automotive, product, fashion, e-learning, corporate, interior films, and self-shooting/lighting talking heads. I have a keen eye for framing and lighting, striving to get the most out of every single shot. I enjoy an ever-changing environment and problem solving on the fly. Positive, with a wicked sense of humour is how I'd describe myself, uplifting the spirits of my team whilst being proactive, safe and professional on set. Focused on creating impactful and interesting media, to change perspectives worldwide. Feel free to contact me at rathekapatel@gmail.com Instagram @rathekashoots
