What’s It Like To Be A Cameraman?

New, 6 comments

Edbigghead and I ask all the questions you want answered from Chase Field cameraman, Ralph Kelso.

As a millennial, I have a generational obligation to be skilled in social networking. The fact of the matter is that I am not, at least in the sense that my generation classifies the skill. Fortunately for me, I have a low fence and a friendly next door neighbor who just so happens to be the high home cameraman at Chase Field! Ralph Kelso is the man of the hour, and he has been answering the call for the Arizona Diamondbacks for all 20 years of their existence. Edbigghead has the knack to approach anyone and conduct an interview, so we took it upon ourselves to ask Ralph what it’s been like to bring Diamondbacks baseball to your television screens for the past two decades. Why don’t we ever see footage of fans running onto the field other than from cell phone videos? What’s a surefire way to find yourself on television? Watch and find out! Don’t be alarmed by the brevity. Ralph was scheduled to be on air shortly before the interview.

If you’d like to ask Ralph any additional questions, let me know because he is only a shout away! He also reads the articles here, so he might even pop in the comments to answer your questions.
