Stuart Brereton

Director of Photography


Recently relocating to the UK after eight years in Los Angeles, Stuart has a solid background in features and television. He started off as camera assistant on movies like ‘The Full Monty’ and ‘Brassed Off’ and then moved on to operating and being 2nd unit DoP on tv series like ‘Dr Who’ and ‘Torchwood’. From action to romance, horror to sci-fi, he takes it all in his stride, and has picked up multiple awards for his cinematography along the way. With bases in the UK and the US, he is available to work worldwide.

"I’ve known Stuart for many years. He brings a keen eye and immense creativity to every project. His composition and lighting are a joy to watch. Highly recommended!”

James Strong, Director: Dr Who, Broadchurch, Vanity Fair, Liar
