Personal Quote:

[on photographing Samuel L. Jackson's scenes in Django Unchained (2012)] Skin naturally reflects in a way that makeup doesn't. So we had to figure out a way to light him. Because the primary story circles slavery, of course every shot will, in one way or the other, deal with the contrast of black and white. I hope we succeeded. See more »

Trivia:

Was the original cinematographer of World War Z (2013) but, due to the time consuming troubled production of the film and the several re-shoots, Richardson had to leave the set early to work on Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained (2012). He was replaced by Ben Seresin, who received the whole credit. See more »

Trademark:
