London based Cinematographer Andy Alderslade works in narrative, promos and documentaries. A strong-believer in telling a story in images, he embraces both classic and modern, high-tech and low-fi methods to creatively tell a tale.
Working in all scales of production, Andy has photographed documentaries for BBC1 and Sky, independent features and larger international productions. This has included working with a variety of talent including the late veteran director Philip Saville and stars Priyanka Chopra, Eric Clapton, Lilly James, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Ruth Negga.
Andy won his first award from his first feature ‘Two Down’, a neo-noir crime thriller directed by Matthew Butler and staring Alex Hassell. Shooting digitally, he gave the production a period look using old lenses, tricks and ‘classical’ lighting. He is experienced with extensive digital SFX (while shooting ‘Contractor 014352’ with Johnny Flynn), but also more practical ‘in-camera’ effects, including traditional back-projection used on ‘Starboy’.
Shoots have taken Andy to North America, India and Europe where he has enjoyed working with local crews and productions.
Forever open-minded, Andy has shot experimental work for both installations and theatre, he recently won awards for the experimental short-film ‘Hollow-Pond’.
