about

 

profielfoto“My goal is to translate the director’s vision onto the screen, make the actors look good and feel pretty. Create the mood of each scene and overall look of the film or video, regardless of the budget. Capture as much production value as possible and most importantly, finish on schedule… I love what I do. My cinematography is as good as the people I work with. I am very grateful and privileged to be surrounded by a faithful and experienced crew.”

 

After filmschool, Narafi Brussels, Diego (1977) began his career as a camera assistant in drama… it was a great learning experience! He saw ‘how magic works’ and fell in love with cinematography. Later he became a cameraman, a new challenge. He filmed “easy on the eyes” documentaries all around the world, corporate movies, current affairs and commercials. “Filming documentaries trains you to listen, to pay attention to the story and find the best way of filming in every situation… The challenge is to remain creative in unexpected changing circumstances. In these environments you’re constantly making decisions on the spot…  here you get experienced!” he says.

Now, Diego has been director of photography for several TV series and feature films:
