Barry Ackroyd is an Oscar nominated Director of Photography (The Hurt Locker) known for his long collaborative film-making relationship with British auteur director, Ken Loach, as well as his reputation for shooting some of the most provocative films with high profile directors, including Paul Greengrass, Kathryn Bigelow, and Baltazar Kormákur. Ackroyd lensed no fewer than twelve films for Loach, culminating in the Cannes Film Festival Golden Palm-winning The Wind that Shakes the Barley. He began working with director Paul Greengrass on United 93, and followed that with The Green Zone, starring Matt Damon, and most recently the Tom Hanks starrer, Captain Philips, which earned him ASC and BAFTA award nominations this year.
