Hi guys,

Please can you tell me how much a studio camera operator would earn in the US if he/she has about 3 to 5 years' experience?

Secondly, what are the salary criteria for studio camera operators ibn the US? To what extent does your salary depend on your formal qualifications, and to what extent does it depend on the level of your experience and showreel where applicable?


I am currently living and working for a news channel in South Africa.

Regards,

Andrea

The minimum (scale) rate for an IATSE Local 600 camera operator doing videotaped shooting for talk shows, reality shows, etc. is $283/day or $35.38/hour, at least according to a 2006 rate card. For features and episodic TV, it's $396.70/day or $49.59/hour.

The other union for television work in NABET I believe, and I don't know what the difference is in types of jobs they cover -- local TV station work mostly, probably. See http://www.nabetcwa.org/about/
