Latvian Guild Of Cinematographers (LGC)
Latvian Guild of Cinematographers (LGC) is a union for Latvian cinematographers and TV cameramen. It was founded in 1993 and has 40 members, a good deal of them being active cinematographers. LGC is formed by the same model as similar unions throughout Europe. LGC shall protect and serve the Latvian cinematographers interests and needs, both socially and professionally. LGC wishes to participate in the professional and the technical development within Latvian film production, especially in connection with the creative and artistic use of the technical equipment. Actual concerns of LGC are professional contracts and agreements between the DOP and production companies and copyright for the DOP. Since 2004 LGC has been a member of Imago – European Federation of Cinematographers.
