"The importance of still photography in film cannot be overstated. Many times, it is the first image the audience sees: It must capture the audiences attention and it must also represent the tone and the character of the story we're telling. Sounds simple right? It's not!"

- Tom Cruise


"Producers often spend more money retouching and fixing bad still photography after the film has wrapped, than they would ever has spent hiring a great still photographer in the first place."


"The Still Photographer is the one person on a film set that is thinking about the marketing of your film from day 1"

- Greg Dyro

former Director of the Warner Bros. Studio Photo Lab




"The still photographer on the set is one of the most under-appreciated members of a movie crew. They capture something no one else does. Reality. They document the actor in a private moment. The moment just before the action. Everything the public doesn't see in the movie. The soul of the set."

- Billy Bob Thornton
