tim cragg








Over the last twenty years I have worked as a cinematographer. I began my career in the film industry as a film editor in the early 1990's. Whilst hugely enjoying the creative craft of editing I wanted to continue my love of photography and joined the camera department. This background in editing has been hugely beneficial at understanding visual narratives.

In 2018 I have three feature films premiering. Treasures from The Wreck of The Unbelievable a mockumentary made with British artist Damien Hirst on Netflix, Three Identical Strangers which premiered at Sundance 2018 and won Special Jury Award for Storytelling and the Audience Award at the Chicago Film Festival, and Serengeti Rules which premiered at the Tribeca Film festival

I have photographed three IMAX 3D theatrical documentaries with Sir David Attenborough, two of which have won Bafta's and also 3d films for artists Damien Hirst, James Turrell, and sculptor Tony Cragg.

The film '35 Letters' premiered at Sydney Film Festival in 2014, winning best documentary and the film 'The Last Man On The Moon premiered at SXSW in 2015.

I was fortunate to win a BAFTA for cinematography and have also been nominated for two BAFTA's as well as two EMMY's. Six films that I have photographed have won BAFTA'S and three films have been nominated for Emmy's.

I am a voting member of BAFTA in the UK and the Academy in the USA.
