 Shooting video, whether with standard professional camcorders like the Sony PMW series, the Panasonic AGHMC81E, the Canon XF300HD, the Canon Cinema EOS C500 or even DSLRs like the 5D Mark III is but one part of the story. You may or may not use interchangeable lenses and a variety of accessories and props to get it just right according to the video you shoot. You need to bring more to it. You will need to have a script ready, the actors to go with the script, a planned sequence and then the actual shooting to get it right the first time. Beyond, you have to sit down at an editing desk, usually a computer these days loaded with Final Cut or Adobe Premiere and edit the video, add sound, titles, special effects and then polish it off. As a San Francisco Bay Area Video Production professional you would need to have shooting skills and editing skills to produce high quality, professional grade broadcast quality videos, a job that is usually handled by a team in high end production units. 

The benefits of learning shooting and editing is you have everything visualized in your mind and can get it right with least waste of time. The downside is that you will be working to tight deadlines. This is fine so long as you have only a few assignments. However, with increasing workload, you will have to consider teamwork if you wish to maintain volumes and delivery on schedules and it pays to start inducting staff, either for shooting or editing or both. Another alternative is to have tie ups  with specialists to do part of the work such as  editing, leaving you free to  focus on shooting if that is what  you are good at when you become established as a San Francisco Bay Area Video Production professional.  On your way to becoming one, take tips from established professionals, download free e-books on shooting and editing.
