Biography

American cinematographer Salvatore Totino worked his way up through the camera department to shoot for major directors, including Oliver Stone and Ron Howard. Born to Italian immigrant parents and raised in Brooklyn, he studied electrical engineering before quitting to work as a contractor. After visiting a friend who was working on a commercial, he was drawn into the production world, assisting on projects and learning to shoot and develop still photographs. His early assistant-camera work came on commercials, music videos, and then films, including Jim Jarmusch's "Night on Earth." He continued his training with cinematographer Harris Savides, leading up to the TV movie "Lake Consequence." After taking the reins as director of photography for commercials and music videos, including the luminous "Fake Plastic Trees" by Radiohead, Totino got his big feature break with Oliver Stone's football drama, "Any Given Sunday." He later became Ron Howard's regular choice behind the camera, beginning with the Western thriller "The Missing" and including both adaptations of best-selling religious-conspiracy novels by Dan Brown, "The Da Vinci Code" and "Angels & Demons."
