Photography contributes to the success of a film or television show as it creates and sets the mood of the film before it is actually released. Unit Stills Photographers are usually hired by the producers, film public relations companies, film sales agents, or the actual distributors. The unit stills photographer is much more than just the set photographer.
The photographer will capture the entire filming process including travel locations, setups, behind the scenes, and also the actual acting. The period of which the photographer is hired depends on the size of the shoot and the budget of the production.
The photographer will be as close to the camera filming as possible to get the same type of frame of shot as the moving camera crew. With experience in working with live television- and recorded television crew, Günther understands the importance of getting the important shots done, without interrupting the filming process and staying out of the way while crew members are busy filming and setting up.
