I love what I do and I've been doing it for a long time. But every shoot is a learning experience and every assignment can be an adventure.
Over the decades as a cameraman and director of photography, I’ve delivered consistent excellence to broadcast and cable networks, independent production companies, and corporate clients. I specialize in documentary style production, and bring strong lighting skills and excellent handheld work to every assignment.
In recent years, my work has won three national Emmy Awards, a DuPont-Columbia Award and a Peabody Award. I was named the 2014 Distinguished Journalism Alumnus by Auburn University.
Rob is a brilliant cameraperson. He constructs shots with imagination and takes enormous pride in his work. He has worked with me on videos for Princeton and Wharton among others and those productions are always made better because of his diligence and his creativity.

When I went on my first 60 MINUTES shoot, there was only one cameraman I wanted – Rob Rainey. I had worked with him for years at CNN, he’d worked for years with 60 MINUTES, and I knew he’d take care of me. It is important to have a cameraman with a great eye, a great story sense and all the right gear. Rob has those and more. He’s got a great personality and he solves problems in a way that creates opportunities. He took care of me on that shoot and he’s still making me look better than I have any right to expect. Plus, if you don’t like Don, you just don’t like folks.

I have known Rob Rainey for many years, and I greatly enjoy working with him. My latest experience shooting a story in Louisiana during the Gulf oil spill was a great pleasure. He has a wonderful eye and attitude. I trust him to get the shots I need, and also to come back with something special.
