Personal Quote:

[on photographing many of Quentin Tarantino's films] Most have a pop approach to the use of vibrant color, which is quite in opposition to the majority of work being done in cinema. That was a tremendous shift for me because I had to move from what I'm normally prone to use, which is a muted palette, to one that's fuller. 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:

He has frequently worked with 'Oliver Stone', Martin Scorsese and Quentin Tarantino. See more »
