I am Carl Pollard, a Director of Photography based in the North West of England.
14 years experience as a Director of Photography and over 25 years experience in the Camera Department working in Feature Films, Television, Commercials and Music Videos.
Recent work includes 'Silent Witness' (BBC), Grantchester (Kudos/ITV), Midas Man (Studio Pow!) 'All Creatures Great & Small' (Playground Entertainment)
Nominated for Best Cinematography for 'Majority' (BFI) at the 2020 UK Tweet awards.
I love the ability that light, shadow, tone and colour can enhance and supplement the narrative, bringing a richness in form to characters, and mood and emotion to a story. I enjoy the incredible synergy it creates, bringing all my technical skills, creative energy and a passionate enthusiasm together in my role as a D.O.P.
I feel very fortunate to work in such a vibrant industry and that I'm able to combine my lifetime love for film and television as my profession on a daily basis.
