About

Sky is an award winning cinematographer working in drama, commercials, documentary, video art and music videos.

Her fixation with cinema began at a tender age when she attempted to adapt her favourite primary school picture books into films.  As a young intrepid traveller she had no qualms travelling through Europe and Asia with a bulky Super8 camera and pack full of film. 

Sky built a successful career as a camera assistant before stepping into the role of cinematographer.  Having worked in the camera department of productions such as Animal Kingdom, Balibo and Where the Wild Things Are, Sky has worked with, and learnt from, some of the great cinematographers of our time.  Her passion for travel has continued to intertwine with her love of cinematography, taking her into such varied places as the crocodile infested waters of Arnhemland and up into the Italian Alps.  Her work ranges from experimental to commercial and narrative driven drama with repeat clients such as Pepsi, Interflora and the ABC.  This dedication has been rewarded with the projects screening in prestigious international festivals (ie Berlinale ’13 & ’14, MIFF ’13,’15,’16,’17,’18) and receiving various festival and ACS awards, including 2016’s Golden Tripod.
