Personal Quote:

[re shooting Dr. Strangelove (1964) with Stanley Kubrick] Stanley could handle a camera, so I told him, 'For all this war stuff, we'll both put on battle dresses and take Arriflexes into the action. We'll film it just like combat cameramen.' See more »


He was a founder member of the British Society of Cinematographers and won a lifetime achievement award from the organisation in 2001. See more »
