Last month I had lunch with Mira Steinzor, who I affectionately referred to in my tweets as “DP Jr”. Besides talking about different cameras, how to manage crews and clients, we discussed how to handle your days in between jobs. I remember having the same question when I graduated from NYU. Unless I was physically on set, it appeared to non-freelancers that I wasn’t working. Nothing could be further from the truth. Freelance artists hustle in our sleep. My day rate could equal someone else’s weekly salary yet I'd feel guilty if I didn’t appear to be working every day. I’ve gotten over that. Besides the fact that even on my worse shoots, being a DP has never felt like work (read: struggle), I now appreciate that there is a lot that we do off the set that directly relates to becoming better filmmakers.
