Wayne Vinten

Cinematographer

Director of photography Wayne Vinten has spent his career trying to discover "the zen of invisibility". Vinten's attempts to remain inconspicious while carrying a camera have seen him shooting an extended CV of documentaries, among them hit film Untouchable Girls, Fiji doco An Island Calling, and his award-winning work on The Promise. Vinten's dramatic work includes early episodes of Outrageous Fortune, and junkie feature The Shirt.

By the time I was 24 I had shot Bob Marley’s last film with the late Dylan Tait, been threatened with physical violence by Steve McQueen, been arrested and deported from Khartoum...what are you going to do, retire? Wayne Vinten, in a 2008 interview in Onfilm
