About Alister Chapman

Alister Chapman Image

Alister Chapman is cinematographer, producer, editor and colorist who has worked in broadcast television since 1986. These days he works mainly as a cinematographer, but in the past worked on many different and varied types of programmes, from documentary to sports to drama as cameraman, editor and colourist.

One of the very first TV shows he worked on was as a cameraman for the BBC’s "Top Gear”, and in 1999 Alister’s production company gained a commission from National Geographic to produce an hour special on severe weather and storm chasing.

Since then Alister has been involved in all kinds of projects shooting natural extremes from hurricanes and tornadoes to the Northern Lights. He now shoots high-end stock footage for feature films, museum exhibits and TV productions, so there is a high likelihood that you will have seen some of his work.

As a working cameraman he knows and understands the problems videographers face in the field and he also has the ability to take sometimes difficult concepts such as color settings, log or raw and bring them down to an easy-to-understand level. In recent years, Alister has become very well-known for his ability to explain many of the advanced techniques used in modern film making.

He is in demand around the world as a trainer, educator and consultant and it is not at all unusual for the events he runs to sell out. His website xdcam-user.com has become a valuable source of information for those wishing to get the very best from their cameras and is visited by over 50,000 users every month.
