Respect the Shooter: The Importance of Cinematographers in a Digital Age

The days of Soundcloud links across your Twitter timeline and cover art for singles flooding your Instagram feed are over. Or at least they should be.

By now, many artists have figured out that with social media and updates becoming more fast paced, you must find new ways to grab the attention of both viewers and listeners.

In many cases, you only have two seconds of scroll time before users flick their thumb and you’re gone off their radar forever.

With the ongoing fight to get a foothold on expanding your fanbase in a digital age, cinematographers have become the lynch pin to garnering engagement online.

Their work has sometimes been overlooked and they’ve often been skipped out on when it comes to credit, but now we see their stock rising more than ever.

Having a good and dedicated videographer as a partner can prove more valuable than the revered producer-artist relationship of the past.

Times are changing, and many have yet to make the shift towards visual releases over the usual streaming service premieres. So for that, we hope this article inspires you.

Pull out the brainstorming notepad, prepare to invest, and take a look at some of these talented creatives below who are pretty ill with the lens.
