Camilla Schick is a foreign affairs producer at CBS News in Washington, D.C. She specialises in TV, digital video, radio, foreign affairs and international news reporting.

She was formerly The New York Timesfirst and only video news producer based outside the U.S. covering breaking news and visual-first stories from the London bureau, with a focus on the UK, Europe, Middle East, Asia, conflict, extremism and terrorism. Before The Times, she worked as a TV broadcast and video journalist for BBC World News in London, having cut her teeth as a Tel Aviv and Jerusalem-based broadcast and print reporter from 2012—2015 for BBC, Al Jazeera's AJ+, Deutsche Welle and others. Her local news stint was in anchoring and producing a daily online video newscast for The Jerusalem Post.

At the start of her career, Camilla worked for the news think-tank Media Standards Trust, headed by former Financial Times Chairman Sir David Bell, which helped expose the UK press media’s phone-hacking scandal. She helped promote innovative journalism tools, and researched for exclusive reports highlighting the problems of 'churnalism', disinformation, inadequate press self-regulation, and declining foreign correspondence, quality and standards in Britain's print news media. 

Born in Paris to British parents, Camilla trained at the UK's top journalism school, City University London, and she has an MPhil in International relations from the University of Cambridge and a first class degree in anthropology from University College London. She wrote her MPhil thesis on the impact of post-9/11 erosion of civil liberties upon British Muslims and the risk of homegrown terrorism.
