RICK HIGGS has been working in the television industry since 2012.  He started as an assistant and worked his way up to operator.  Since he started he has travelled to more than 50 countries for work.  

Rick's passion for film making and moving pictures led him to buy a Steadicam rig in 2018.  He then travelled to the USA to learn the art of steadicam operating under master Steadicam operator, Greg Smith (Steadicam operator of the year nominee 2016)

Rick takes direction really well and strives to make every production he works on the best.

Rick is based in pretoria, south africa, but always ready for a traveling adventure!
