Malcolm Hadley

Director of Photography



With over 20 years experience, I am a DOP working in features, commercials and documentary.

I’ve worked on some fantastically creative and diverse projects from Wes Anderson’s highly acclaimed feature, Isle of Dogs to award winning commercials like The Knitted Ad Break (ITV Creative’s first DA&D’s pencils) and in documentary with Still Enemy Within (Audience Award at the Sheffield Doc Fest).

What unites these projects is an approach that combines preparation, research, and collaboration with a determination to make the best of the resources at hand. I enjoy long term relationships with some of the UK and Europe’s most successful production companies, so whether it’s shooting hi-speed and puppetry in Kiev to owls in Crystal Place, whether a charity film in Cambodia or aerials over the Brecon Beacons in the magic hour, I’m always equipped to get the best possible shot.

I believe strongly in collaboration; in working closely with the director and production team to create the best films and getting every last drop of value from the budget. I draw upon an arsenal of technical knowledge honed over hundreds of projects on a huge array of formats. My background in fine art and photography informs my approach. I’m sought out to shoot multidisciplinary projects that involve or combine stop frame, time-lapse, 360 VR, motion control, tabletop, food and pack shots and my strong knowledge of post-production and VFX has proved to be a consistent asset on set.
