Hi all,
I was wondering, for someone trying to go down the road to becoming a cinematographer, would it be better when working on sets to be part of the camera team or the lighting team? Knowledge of both is important, so should one work on camera on some sets and then lighting on others? Do most DPs start out on either one of the teams? Opinions or personal stories would be great thanks!

I don't know about the US, but most of our lighting guys are qualified electricians.
