“We put a spotlight on these acclaimed Australian technicians – including their career highlights and how they shot them – as part of International Women’s Day.
To gain accreditation from the Australian Cinematographers Society (ACS) is no mean feat.
It requires a minimum number of years working within the industry and a body of work which represents not just that you can do the job, but with a level of creativity and innovation that exceeds the norm.
A sub-committee then assesses the work and from there you may be awarded your ‘letters’ – the ACS that appears after your name.
To date, 15 women have been awarded that elite title (only 5.6%), and the ACS hopes that will grow. As part of International Women’s Day, we celebrate their achievements, and hear in their own words about career highlights, cameras, lenses, and what draw them to cinematography (in order of accreditation year)….”
