Set Designer (Photography)

Widely speaking, a set designer will rely on crafty expertise to develop and transform an idea into a physical setting or design. Beyond deft making skills and precise attention to detail, the role can call upon solid organisation, rapid problem solving and team leadership to realise a vision for TV, film, photography, theatre or event production. A near-encyclopedic knowledge of materials and their suppliers might also prove incredibly useful when sourcing weird and wonderful fabrics and props.

Please Note: The world of creative careers is broad and ever-evolving. While our descriptions aim to capture the essence of a role, we appreciate that no two jobs will be the same. We’re always looking to grow, expand and add to these roles, so if you feel we are missing something please let us know!
