    Ryan Owen Eddleston


    I’m originally from Blackburn, Lancashire & over the last couple of decades I've been in Cardiff, Wales where I’ve been working as a Director of Photography shooting feature films, documentaries & music promos.

    I shot the documentary ‘American Interior’ over 3 months in the USA, which screened at SXSW Film Festival & was released in cinemas by Soda Pictures, is now available on DVD, and I have just been nominated for a BAFTA Cymru.
    I also shot the documentary ‘The Poet That Loved The War: Ivor Gurney’ in France & Belgium, which was broadcast on BBC Four, which I won the BAFTA Cymru for.
    I also shot the feature film ‘Benny & Jolene’ which screened at festivals, was released in cinemas and is now available on DVD by Verve Pictures.
    I've recently DOP'd the feature film 'A Wonderful Christmas Time' starring Dylan Edwards & Laura Haddock, which is out in November as limited release in cinemas, then DVD and On Demand.
    I've also worked as as a 2nd unit DOP, and camera operator on bigger budget feature films such as Friday Download Movie and Under Milk Wood (starring Rhys Ifans).
    I'm scheduled to DOP the feature film 'Black Mountain Poets' in Wales over October & November.

    I've worked with most high end cameras such as the Alexa, Amira and Epic, I reguarly travel for work and I'm happy to work as a DOP, 2nd unit DOP or a camera operator.

    I've just been nominated for two BAFTA Cymru Awards, and won a BAFTA Cymru Award, my work has screened at notable festivals around the world & has broadcast on the BBC, Channel 4, S4C, MTV and Sky.
