Bonus Trivia

.

"It helps to have other eyes around you -- people who love their jobs, and can bring different elements to your attention. On 'Phenomenon' I had a great crew that was 100 percent committed." --Phedon Papamichael in American Cinematographer, July 1996.

.

"The most important achievement for a cinematographer is to find the appropriate language for the script, rather than imposing your own style on the story. You have to let the story dictate the style." --Phedon Papamichael in American Cinematographer, July 1996.

Has shot music videos for both U2 and Pearl Jam.
