Awards and gongs don't necessarily mean that a person is super-normal.

Douggie however is a super hero of our industry. Brave and innovative. If only us ?younger? men would follow his lead.

The first time I met him I was an aspiring camera assistant and thought I didn?t have the personal polish to ever be a DP.

Well maybe I don?t but he inspired me to persevere, as all you need is a passionate interest and of course luck.

This honour goes to a man who deserves it.

Hi John,

I was lucky enough to work with Mr Slocombe about 1987, on a couple of commercials when I was the motion control operator. He was great to work with.
