I've been shooting corporate/tv/doc work primarily for several years now. Im branching into more narrative/scripted stories and clients. I was just wondering if other DP's out there could talk a bit about how you found your gaffer? Seems like you need a good mix of skill with lighting, while also being a team player to aid you on set. Did they grow with you out of film school? Did you interview and hire them? Recommended by someone in the biz? How did you work out your creative artistry with their own?
I'm also located in Denver which makes it harder to fill that position than say LA...
Any advice would be great!
