BRYAN COOK
DIRECTOR OF PHOTOGRAPHY

Hi. My name is Bryan Cook and I am a London based director of photography. I have been in the film and TV industry since 2008 and have been fortunate to work on a lot of fun and interesting projects.

Born and raised in Oklahoma, I had the unique opportunity and privilege to observe Emmanuel Lubezki (Chivo), ASC on the set of To the Wonder. From this experience a passion developed inside me. I have found my calling to tell stories that resonate with the audience. I have been lucky to work with directors who possess an extremely visual understanding of the medium and for this I am grateful. I am open to collaboration on future projects with like-minded people.
