After graduating from Cambridge University, Camilla completed a post-graduate diploma in journalism, in London. She worked as a news and sports reporter and news reader in local and national radio and then switched to network television. She first worked as an on-screen reporter and after completing a Director's training course at BBC Elstree, progressed to working as a producer/director on both magazine and long-form documentary programmes.
Travelling the world, she has produced and directed documentaries for BBC1, BBC2, BBC3, ITV 1, Channel 4, Five and Sky One, sometimes dealing directly with channel commissioners. Productions include the RTS award-winning investigative documentary series, 'On The Line' for BBC2. Her interviewees include prime ministers, cabinet ministers, international pop stars and sports personalities, as well as the elite of the British film industry. During her career, she has worked with some of the country's best cameramen and editors.
Embracing technological advances in the television industry, Camilla is also an accomplished camera-operator in her own right, filming one-off documentaries and full documentary series for network broadcast.
Camilla teaches television and drama production on all three years of the Media Production degree.
Camilla is currently embarking on a PhD investigating the continuing political influence of the media, with particular reference to Fox News in America; how it serves the right wing political agenda and the rhetoric of white ethno-nationalism, in the context of the election of an African-American Democrat as president and the ongoing ethnic and demographic transformation of the country.
