Biography

Michał Wiśniowski
Hello! I am Michal Wisniowski,
camera operator and director of photography.
In one word – CINEMATOGRAPHER.

I’ve graduated from The Polish National Film, Television and Theatre School in Lodz (Lodz Film School), university studies in Cinematography. Since then I’ve shot and colour graded many independent fiction and documentary movies, i.e.: ‘Prime Meridian’ – 2nd Award and Best Pictures Award at ‘Drzwi’ Film Festival; ‘Odium’ – Grand Prix at eFHa Science Fiction Movies Festival in Bielawa, 2nd Award at ‘Na linii czasu’ Film Festival in Lublin.

I was director of photography in internationally well-known documentary feature ‘Solidarity according to women’, and also camera operator in documentary ‘Downtown – The city of Downs’ – Hollywood Eagle Documentary Award.

For more than a year I was based in United Kingdom and shot different projects there. One of the biggest and my first feature movie was Canadian ‘The Wasting’.
Nowadays I am shooting both in UK and Poland, evolving my cinematography skills and looking for a new collaborators and job opportunities. Let’s shoot something together!
