John Henshall



Once a Camera Operator – always a Cinematographer!

John Henshall joined the camera department of the BBC in 1961 as a teenager, straight from school. The first of many ‘stars’ he worked with were Bob Hope and Bing Crosby – and that was the first time he was told off by his boss! After a long career, John is now President of the Guild of Television Camera Professionals – the organisation he helped to create 47 years ago to represent the craft of camera operation. Throughout his career John has always loved to take risks and break the rules. And he has delighted in inspiring students – the cinematographers of the future.
