Christopher Sharman

Director of Photography


Selected as one of the BAFTA Crew for 2019/2020, Chris’s background and experience is about as wide as it gets. From starting in documentary, he has successfully moved into narrative with four features and numerous shorts to his credit. Not only that, his commercials and promo work give him a range found in few other DOPs of his generation.
