As a freelance Gallery Director & Camera Operator, I’ve been working successfully for both broadcast and corporate productions for over 13 years. As a Camera Operator I have worked on a diverse range of programmes including; factual, lifestyle, comedy, entertainment, reality & music (bar counted as well as busked), from one man PSC shoots through to large multi camera productions - in the studio and on location. As a Gallery Director I have worked on observational fixed rig docs and multi-camera entertainment. Both of which being in control of and cutting between over 50 hot head, fixed and manned cameras. Being a Camera Op and a Director means I can bring a greater skill set and understanding to either role. It is a real advantage to know the technical capabilities of the cameras you are directing, and to be able to make quick editorial decisions based on this knowledge and visa versa. I am able to bring a knowledge and empathy for both sides of the technical and editorial spectrum. Read Less

I've worked with Marieke for over 10 years now, initially as a fellow Cameraman then as a Director. She is a delight to work with & for. There is never any panic or fuss from Marieke which filters through to her crew & production, but this doesn't mean she doesn't care, far from it. She is very conscientious & often goes the extra mile with great results. Marieke is an asset to any production
