English term or phrase: goes behind the camera
TV personality goes behind the camera for a trip to El Salvador

Thanks for your help

personalidad de TV
Explanation:
deja las cámaras para hacer un viaje a El Salvador.

This means that this person leaves the sets and travels privately.

Another option:

Personalidad de TV va detrás de cámaras en un viaje a El Salvador.

Meaning that instead of being in front of the cameras during this trip, this person will shoot the film and/or images.

One of these two must fit into your text. It all depends on the context.

HTH :-)

detras de las escenas


Explanation:
I see 'behind the camara' as a synonym for 'behind the scenes.' Just another possibility. Hope this helps. :)

va detrás de las cámaras


Explanation:
Es una expresión muy típica en televisión. Adelante de las cámaras están los actores, los periodistas, etc., son las figuras famosas cuyos rostros conocemos. "Detrás de las cámaras" están los camarógrafos, los directores, los luminitos, es decir, todos aquellos que trabajan para que salga al aire un programa de televisión pero que nosotros, como espectadores, no conocemos. Esta personalidad lo que hizo fue ir detrás de las cámaras, es decir adoptó un papel que no se vé. Fíjate en el contexto, tal vez más adelante te diga qué hizo específicamente.
