Richard Allen - Bio
Richard Allen is a UK based cinematographer. He has broad experience across a range of content including an extensive music video portfolio, commercials (online and TVCs) as well as films (short and feature length).
He is always looking for new ways to use lighting, composition and motion as expressive tools, to enhance storytelling, and create emotion through the visuals.
In his earlier years, he was passionate about art, photography, design and architecture. This evolved into an interest in filmmaking and an acquirement of all round film production skills (through making his own films, and working as an AC and spark), as well as studying a BA in Film and TV Production. His approach and understanding has largely developed from experience in the field, an awareness of the world and film around him, and a sharp eye.
In 2019, Richard undertook training at the National Film and Television School (NFTS) in 16mm and 35mm motion picture film cameras.
