Director of Photography London: Kris Brady 

Originally starting in that shooting PD world of television,  I actually spent a number of years as a director, subsequently. Directing was fun but I could never give up the camera bug. I was drawn so much more to what I was doing with the camera, rather than what a director should be doing overall with the piece. I decided to focus all of my efforts into cinematography and have never looked back. I spent my time now working as a direector of photography based in london and I also do some work as a photographer.  As a DOP, I do get to travel a lot but love spending time in the UK especially London. 

Shooting in London 

London is amazing for both cinematography and photography, there are tons of interesting places to visit, do a lot of street photogrpahy in central london, usually soho and china town for some amazing visuals. spending time taking stills is a really important way to sharpen your skills as a DOP all cinematographers should take the time to do this. 

Resources and learning 

There are some great resources for young DOPs and aspiring cinematographers to learn the craft. Online tutorials and masterclasses are a great way for a DOP to learn. Practicing photography is one of the best ways as photography hones your craft down to one image. Photography is also a great way to showcase to directors your skills. as a director of photography you will be working with a director closely and you should be able to have detailed conversations about photography to choose a direction for your next DOP job.
