Envision The Scene

Landscapes through a cinematographer's eye

James Neihouse is a name you need to know. A graduate of the Brooks Institute of Photography, James has done more in the field of photography and videography than I would guess anyone else you have met, ever, anywhere. I know what you're thinking, but nope…. I am not even close to kidding.

James is a member of The American Society of Cinematographers (ASC), and The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) – Cinematography Branch, along with numorous other organizations. My fave line item on James' resume is this one:

Director of Photography and Astronaut Training Manager for IMAX space productions.

James has trained more than 130 astronauts on 20 shuttle flights and 6 space station missions in the operation of the IMAX camera!

In fact, James has Camera operator, Assistant cameraman, and Lighting experience on more than 1,000 film and video projects, and is listed in IMDB as having 32 Cinematographer credits. He worked on the IMAX film Ocean, the first underwater film made in the format, and has since worked on more than 30 IMAX and other large format films. His first credit as director of photography was on the film The Eruption Of Mount St. Helens, which was the first IMAX film to be nominated for an Academy Award®. I am trying to not make this a multi-page bullet list, but the truth is that describing James Neihouse requires a clear explanation of experience – lots of experience. Check out his about page here, a resume here, and his awards and affiliations here. Better yet, here is a demo reel. Also, here is his IMDB page – wow!

As a photographer and educator James leads various workshops (https://www.jamesneihouse.com/workshops-2018) and is an in demand speaker. Coming up in early June 2018 James will lead his workshop to the Palouse, and as you can see from this episode it is a favorite spot for many photographers.

Join me on this episode of Behind the Shot as I take a look at landscape photography through the eyes of an award-winning cinematographer, Jame Neihouse.
