Jono Smith


DoP / Lighting Camera


Having trained in New Zealand from the age of 18, Jono has spent the last 19 years in the UK working as a freelance cinematographer. During that time he has shot in over 40 countries and used nearly every camera and recording format invented other than 'perhaps 70mm and possibly nitrate film'. Working with some of the UK’s top actors and directing talent, Jono has always been passionate about producing beautiful pictures that compliment and enhance the story. Jono's impressive trophy cupboard includes awards from Bafta, The Royal Television Society and the Golden and Silver Roses at the Montreaux International Television festival.
