John Brawley has developed a reputation as one of Australia’s most talented and sought after Directors of Photography,
who works with vision, speed and an inherently collaborative nature. Since graduating with an MA from the Australian Film Television and Radio School, he has built an impressive slate of feature films and television credits including some of Australia’s most loved shows.
A long time Olympus user and supporter for the micro Four Thirds system. John is a pioneer in his field who produces inspiring work and with an affinity for the Olympus brand.
He has received considerable industry recognition in the feature world too, having shot several films including 100 Bloody Acres directed by Colin and Cameron Cairnes, Lake Mungo and The Perfect Host, a US feature film starring David Hyde Pierce, which screened at Sundance in 2010 and received a US release. In between these longer running projects, John has shot several short films and TVCs for a range of directors.
"I shoot Olympus because their lenses are sharp and have better colour reproduction. Their cameras are indestructible, yet they are smaller and lighter than their equivalents in other brands."
