Biography

Suprisingly, Emmy Award-winning cinematographer Tim Suhrstedt didn't even own a camera until he was 24. Suhrstedt's slight interest in film snowballed when he enrolled in a college cinema studies course at Lehigh University. He soon found himself behind the lens of a rented 8mm camera, filming a visual montage that would become his senior thesis. Suhrstedt hit Hollywood in the late '70s, and struck success the following decade as the eye behind effects genre comedies like "Teen Wolf," "Critters," and "Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure." In 1994, Suhrstedt took home his Emmy for the CBS hospital drama "Chicago Hope," and he formed a memorable partnership with comedian, writer, and director Mike Judge the same year. The two collaborated on the cult workplace comedy "Office Space," as well as on Judge's following two projects. Suhrstedt continued to impress elsewhere in TV and film, lending his expertise to series like the quirky comedy series "Ally McBeal" and the soapy medical drama "Grey's Anatomy," as well as working beside comedians like Ricky Gervais on his high-concept farce, "The Invention of Lying." A longtime fan of actor Alan Arkin, Suhrstedt finally had an opportunity to photograph the actor in the 2006 indie darling comedy "Little Miss Sunshine."
