Giles Nuttgens is a British cinematographer who began his career with the BBC TV for the Natural History documentary unit in 1984, and rose up through the camera assistant ranks, and by the age of 25 he was one of the youngest film cameramen ever in the BBC. After many years living in Paris, he relocated to Barcelona in late 2003.
Although best known for independent films, he also has worked on major commercial productions such as the recent Star Wars prequels, and Swimfan.
He has also collaborated on more than one occasion with Scott McGehee and David Siegel on The Deep End and Bee Season, and David Mackenzie on Young Adam, Asylum and most recently Hell Or High Water. He won the 2001 Sundance Film Festival's Cinematography Award for The Deep End.
It was an honor to speak with Giles about his work on one of the best films of the year, Hell or High Water. The film is currently playing nationwide and I'd highly recommend it to anyone with even a passing interest in film.
