dc.description.abstractI’m frequently asked ‘Why are there so few women cinematographers?’ I do speculate on the reasons, but the answer is not simple. Cinematographers need a combination of creativity, technical ability, spatial skills, people skills and stamina – both mental and physical. None of these capacities should be a bar to women entering the camera department on the basis of gender alone. That said, the chronically low rates of women employed as director of photography or camera operator are astonishing.
