FOREWORD
After formal tertiary education in photography and art, Jason Thomas embarked on a
cinematography career as a camera assistant with a commercial television network and was
fortunate to train under some of the best news and current affairs cameramen from around
Australia. Core to Jason's training and style of cinematography is his ability to adapt quickly to
change and work fast. Jason says his work is a carefully measured combination of working fast
to capture the moment and meticulous planning.
"It's more than just recording images," he says.
"Cinematography elicits visceral emotions in an audience with profound effect. It's about
capturing colour and movement in camerawork, shaping contrasts of the light and dark in
lighting and finding balance in the framing and composition of a scene.
"Great cinematography weaves these subconscious emotions through the narrative with
transparent sensibility like recording the image(s) through water coloured glass. As Director of
Photography these artistic responsibilities extend beyond the intangible to the tangible like the
physical, managerial, organisational, commuicative and interpretive skills."
Jason is a member of the Australian Cinematographers Society (ACS) and has won numerous
awards for his work.
