Ricardo has worked in broadcast television as a lighting cameraman for over 15 years. Starting out as a camera assistant on magazine programmes for Discovery, he quickly developed the skillset necessary to understand the demanding schedules of production whilst simultaneously having to provide a high standard of camerawork that not only was technically proficient but would understand an editor’s needs in post production. Trained by BBC and ITV cameramen who had progressed to editing and directing, with access to AVID editing systems and constant feedback on footage the learning curve was steep in the years as a staff member. After going freelance in 2006 he has been consistently in work and gradually built a portfolio over many genres, from music and cooking programs to live events, short films to online branded content campaigns.
Ricsblake Films was formed to provide services as a Director of Photography and as a Media Production Company. If a client needs a film made to promote their company Ricsblake Films has access to a broad network of directors, producers, motion graphics artists and editors to staff a project depending on its aim and budget. For further information about the services of a Director of Photography & Media Production, please get in touch.
In recent years Ricardo has specialised in covering major sporting events as a Director of Photography for companies such as FIFA, UEFA, UFC, NFL, F1, the RFU, and ongoing programs for BT Sport, SKY, and the Olympic Channel. Working with top athletes is always a challenge in a fast moving environment where schedules are always time-sensitive, and Ricardo understands the balance between respecting short time-frames whilst still being able to produce a high quality product that follows the individual style of a program. Working in an ENG or OB capacity Ricardo has worked on events such as the 2010 and 2014 World Cup, the Euros 2012 and 2016 and the Rugby World Cup 2015, and most recently the Official Film for the UEFA Nations League Finals in Portugal 2019.
