Hi,
I want to get in touch with some gaffers so I can talk with them but I don't know where or how to get in contact with them. With cinematographers the ASC house or the union is a way. ANy recomendations with gaffers?
Thanks
Miguel

This is how it works in London: the big lighting rental houses have certain gaffers that are "tied" to the rental house, in effect they act as a kind of agent for them. In return, they get the to rent the gear to the production. In London that means AFM Lighting, Arri Lighting or Lee Lighting, basically. If you call their booking they'll be able to connect you to loads of experienced gaffers. I'm assuming that's how it works in the US as well.
