A prominent Sydney cameraman has been remanded in custody after facing court accused of sexually abusing a teenage girl over several years.

The 36-year-old did not apply for bail and it was formally refused when he faced Parramatta Local Court on Saturday.

Police will allege the man, from Sydney's southeast, first had sex with the girl in late 2012 or early 2013 when she was 13 and intoxicated.

The award-winning cameraman, who has worked in both film and television, allegedly had sex with the girl again when she was 14 and then 15, court documents reveal.

It will be alleged he also captured and kept indecent photographs of the teenager and showed her child abuse material when she was 15.

Police will claim the man also had 46 videos of pre-teen children engaged in sexual activity in his possession between 2013 and 2015.

He was arrested when Redfern-based officers and detectives from the State Crime Command's Child Abuse Squad raided his home on Friday.

An H2 Hummer, computers, telephones, storage devices and and clothing were seized for investigation.

The 36-year-old is expected to face Central Local Court via video-link on October 18.
