Ross Metcalf

Camera Department, DOP



A specialist at creating smooth cinematic emotive imagery Ross has worked across various genres and currently chooses to focus on TV Commercials, Cinematic Promotional films and Short or Long form narrative films. As a recent finalist in the Australian Fashion Film Awards, additional camera operator on the feature “Paper Planes” and having worked in the frozen conditions of Burlington Vermont USA to the Tropics of Singapore as a focus puller & AC his abilities to adapt to the shoot under pressure and with professionalism are exceptional. As a keen problem solver he can adapt to a variety of shooting situations and has the patience required to create specific camera rigs/gimbal setups for various camera packages on the fly.

He has an extensive experience working on mid size crew sets as a D.O.P and completed his second Feature length Narrative film in 2014 with others slated for 2015. As a member of the Western Australian ACS branch he keeps active in the cinematography profession/community and communicates well with his peers.


  1. I couldn’t recommend Ross more. A great eye, incredible technical understanding and ability to adapt to different crewing rosters and situations, his commitment to the job extends beyond his DOP abilities which makes him the complete professional package.

  2. There’s no question, Ross is an enthusiastic, capable and collaborative DOP with a very good understanding of the technology and an even better creative ‘eye’.
    Can highly recommend him.
