FINDING ANGLES. SHAPING LIGHT. BENDING COLOUR. MAKING MOVES.
"It’s the choices that happen behind the lens that define what happens in front. As a cinematographer, it’s these choices I make every day, on locations all over the world, filming many acclaimed films & television series. It’s also the knowlege that I share through my workshops & speaking engagements. Helping others aquire the techniques that will take their video & lighting to a higher level.
The workshops are unique and personal in nature - small groups, tailored to meet the specific needs of those attending".

In the Red Centre, Alice "Springs" to the Video Masterclass
There was a great turnout for my recent Alice Springs video camera and lighting masterclass.
Here is an followup note from the newsletter of the Film and Television Assocciation of the Northern Territory:
"Director of Photography Pieter de Vries delivered a very personal and informative workshop to a large group of filmmakers in Alice Springs earlier this month.
A group of more than 15 people gathered at Witchetty's in the Araluen Centre to make the most of the opportunity to learn some key tips and tricks from one of the best in the business.
It was encouraging to see people with a variety of backgrounds and knowledge, including cinematographers with a high level of industry experience through to young students with a passion for telling stories on screen, and de Vries tailored his class to try to suit the needs of everyone.
