Geoff Clements

Camera Operator

Known to some as 'The General', cameraman Geoff Clements spent over half a century covering sports for television. His first day on the job was in 1966;  Clements retired in 2017, having been awarded with an NZ Order of Merit for services to television in 2010. He died on 7 October 2019, at age 72, in his hometown of Christchurch.   

It's about not being too tight with your shots. A ball going across the ground says nothing. A ball with someone running after it says something. A ball with someone reverse cup underneath it says something; a ball that suddenly two seconds later is caught means nothing. Geoff Clements, in an interview with cricketing website ESPNcricinfo, 13 March 2017
