Camera Confidential: live Q&A with video journalist Christian Parkinson

Camera Confidential: live Q&A with video journalist Christian Parkinson

Join us at 1pm GMT on Thursday 31st July for a live Google Hangout with Christian Parkinson, author of Camera Confidential: an insiders guide to video journalism.

Earlier this month BBC cameraman Christian Parkinson launched his new book, 'Camera Confidential: an Insiders Guide to Video Journalism', in collaboration with RPT. Christian is donating all proceeds of the book to the Trust. The book is full of useful tips, advice and information from some of the world's top news cameramen and camerawomen.

We'll be talking with Christian about the book, his experiences of working in some of the world's most dangerous environments, and the advice he would give to young freelancers starting out in the industry. The Google Hangout will be streamed live from our Google+ page at 1pm GMT on Thursday, 31st July.

You can also watch it on the day through the video below, or via YouTube.

"I've written Camera Confidential to help people who shoot", says Christian. "It's the book I wish someone had handed me as a fresh faced twenty-five year old jumping on a plane for my first foreign assignment".
