Directors, DP’s, PD’s The Creative production peeps

When should one confidently say “I am a Director of Photography”? Holding a camera comes with a slew of titles, should those titles be reflective of one’s skill set or a dynamic free for all?

If you’re holding a camera that makes you a camera operator. DoP means you’re running three departments on set - camera, grip and electric. It’s like a writer saying they the creative Director because they wrote something. DoP is a manager. Most DoPs I work with don’t touch the camera they sit in a chair next to the director tweaking looks with the DIT.

Thanks for the reply and your time, if you know of any crews I am definitely open to seeing how bigger productions work. Feel free to message me if you think you could help. I could show you my work, I think it would at least qualify me to hold a c-stand 😂. Also you bringing up the bit about working with directors, it keeps tugging at me when I look at my work, and I feel like that’s what is missing. That collaboration piece where you come up with something better than anyone could have done by themselves.

Is ZS’ recruiting process always so disjointed? I get 1-2 calls a year that always go nowhere because my current salary is too high (it’s really not).

I’m a junior designer. I want a raise. I just graduated, but I’ve worked as an intern at 9 agencies and as a full time designer at 2. Is that enough experience to ask for a promotion?

What are some of the good M&A advisory/Transaction Services/Restructuring consulting firms in the city? Big 4, MBB, Alvarez & Marsal, and FTI are big in those spaces in Chicago. Any other big ones?

Recently promoted, but raise was minimal (<5%). I’ve been scoped as a CD for last 6 months, while billing my hours as an ACD. Is this illegal, or at least grounds for requesting backdated pay?
