Damien King, Camera & Steadicam Operator

Born in Brisbane, Australia I completed my schooling in Thailand and at the age of eighteen, returned home spending time in the Northern Territory outback collaborating with Aboriginal communities building houses and amenities.

Determined to fulfil my dream to tell stories and work with cameras I found a trainee opportunity at the Seven Network in Brisbane. After six years at the Network, I left to work abroad and based myself out of London. For the following ten years, I travelling the world and finally landed back in Thailand.

Continuing my freelance film career I met and worked with Cinematographer Wade Muller HKSC on several films. Seeking to bring additional skills to my camera operating I travelled to the US and completed the Steadicam course.

Recently I have worked on Australian Drama including Series 3 and 4 of Doctor Doctor, with Cinematographer John Stoke ACS. Series 2 of Harrow with DP’s Mark Wareham ACS and John Stokes ACS and Lunatics, a Netflix original production starring Chris Lillie.

A career highlight was having the opportunity to work in Havana, Cuba with DP Miguel Littin Menz as B Camera/Steadicam Operator on ‘Un Traductor’ (The Translator) which was excepted as an official entrant for Best International Foreign Film in the 2020 Acadamy Awards.

Recently I continued my association with Cinematographer Wade Muller HKSC on Occupation Rainfall as his B Camera/Steadicam Operator, where in addition to my Tiffen M1 Steadicam we utilised the ARRI Trinity.

With the lifting of Covid restrictions and resumption in production in August 2020, I began working with Cinematographer Geoff Hall ACS on ‘Eden’ a STAN Original series as his A Camera/Steadicam/Trinity Operator.
