Catherine Derry


Catherine’s route into cinematography followed the time-honoured route: from clapper loader, to focus puller, to assistant camera, and then as DoP on a dozen or so shorts. Her first feature as Cinematographer was Jamie Thraves’ ‘Treacle Jr’ which won the Golden Hitchcock award at Dinard in 2010. Her second film ‘Junkhearts’ also picked up awards at the London and Moscow International Film Festivals, and now her third feature ‘Svengali’ gets its premiere at the Edinburgh International Film Festival this Summer. Her commercials work includes Nike, Nokia, Clarks shoes and Max Factor. Based in London, Catherine is available for work worldwide.
