Chefkameramann (ASC / AFC) * 1960-63 lebt mit seiner Familie in Frankreich * Studium an der Stanford University (California) * seit Mitte der 70er Jahre arbeitet in Kamerateams als gaffer (bis 1987; "Upon graduating, I really had the desire to start working in very concrete terms. Out of 1,000 students, 900 would want to be directors, with the remaining 100 cinematographers, but I deliberately chose to go for the gaffer position because filmmaking is, first and foremost, a team effort! I then quickly realised that working near cinematographers would allow me to learn in very concrete terms how to construct an image, how to sculpt light.") und chief lighting technician (Chefbeleuchter; 1987-2002) * 2002 gibt mit 51 Jahren sein Debüt als Chefkameramann mit Clint Eastwoods Blood Work - bis 2017 fotografiert alle Filme des Regisseurs ("As a gaffer, I was lucky enough to work with several cinematographers who proved amazing both as artists and as human beings. When they retired, or passed away as was the case with Conrad Hall, I seriously contemplated quitting. It was only when given the opportunity by Clint that I suddenly realized I could start anew. His power helped overcoming union barriers, as they are very powerful in the US and usually prevent gaffers from making the picture in studio features.") * dreht auch ein paar Filme in Europa (Frankreich) | Bild: Gran Torino (2008)


"I was fortunate to work with Conrad Hall and other top people at the highest levels, and that really helped me develop my eye..."
