Front Up
After nine years and nine series of shooting Front Up around the streets of Australia, Greg Kay continues to amaze all (especially his colleagues) with his ability to shoot off the shoulder for days at a time. But even more remarkably, he keeps his cool, his sense of humour and his considerable professional expertise. The fact that he makes it look easy doesn't mean it is: the quality and sensitivity of his work is why he continues to shoot Front Up. And the fact that over dinner he lets me drink most the wine in the bottle.

News coverage of "Brooklyn Train crash"

(Excerpts from a letter to the News Director Channel Ten Sydney)

I worked with Greg the night of the fatal train smash at Brooklyn. Looking through Greg's tapes the following day I was so delighted I thought it shouldn't go unmentioned…From every aspect …angles, framing, clarity, steadiness and shot initiative his tapes were first class. It was a case of tossing a coin to select from so many great shots…His were easily the best pictures on the night. I hope they are entered in the appropriate awards.

"Sydney Hobart Yacht Race"
Thank you and well done for your work on this years Sydney Hobart coverage. Your camera work on the start telecast was outstanding. You were obviously listening to the commentary and following it with initiative and flair. Two very important qualities in a cameraman…… It really makes a difference for a Director on a live telecast to have a cameraman who is "thinking on his feet".
Many thanks.
