15ish. Maybe 8-10 larger productions and a handful of smaller internal shoots.

Good Q. Maybe 5-6 proper shoots.

I only go to about three or four shoots a year. On average it’s one NYC shoot, one or two other US cities and one international.

But it really depends on what accounts you work on and to some degree luck and timing of being assigned a job that has a production going on (vs editorial, animation or influencer content only). I worked on a surprising amount of high budget animation jobs lately so I can’t complain as I’m working with great vendors and the videos turn out beautiful.
