RICK HIGGS is a primetime emmy award nominated cinematographer, Steadicam operator and underwater videographer.
Rick worked his way through the ranks, starting as a camera assistant/ camera technician and switched to camera operating in 2017. Rick has been steadicam operating since 2018 after he bought his own rig and did a steadicam workshop in the USA with master steadicam operator Greg Smith (westworld; john wick; ted; man down).
Rick has always found movement as the ultimate storytelling technique and strives to create those powerful moments to take any project to the next level.
Ricks' passion for storytelling, drive and motto of only dealing in solutions and not problems is what will give your next project that advantage!
