Kevin Riley

Cinematographer

Kevin Riley worked his way up from gaffer to cameraman to cinematographer, after beginning his working career as an electrician. Along the way he set up Auckland equipment company Cinestuff, founded the New Zealand Cinematographer's Society, and has provided a wide range of images from muscle-clad heroes (Hercules) to the highly competitive world of pub quizzes (Nothing Trivial).

Cinematographers occupy a privileged position on every production. To be entrusted with the technical interpretation of any creative endeavour requires that we listen first, before all else. Kevin Riley
