Biography

As a renowned cinematographer and television director, Newton Thomas Sigel worked a number of low-budget indies before joining forces with director Bryan Singer on "The Usual Suspects" (1995), thus opening the doors to major studio films. From there, Sigel moved up the ladder, shooting "Blood and Wine" (1996) starring Jack Nicholson and "Fallen" (1998) with Denzel Washington before working again with Singer on "Apt Pupil" (1998). By this time, he was Singer's go-to cinematographer and Sigel segued to blockbuster films by shooting "X-Men" (2000) and "X2" (2003) for the director. Despite his ongoing working relationship with Singer, he branched out to film David O. Russell's "Thee Kings" (1999), George Clooney's "Confessions of a Dangerous Mind" (2002) and Terry Gilliam's "The Brothers Grimm" (2005). Sigel upped the ante with Singer's highly anticipated "Superman Returns" (2006) and his well-received follow-up, "Valkyrie" (2008), before delivering some of his finest work on the critical darling "Drive" (2011). Whether in collaboration with Singer or other top Hollywood directors, Sigel remained one of the industry's most sought-after directors of photography.
