Edd Lukas is an award-winning cinematographer whose passion for film earned him credits in the camera department on high profile films such as Casino Royale and Atonement. He has twice been recognized by Variety as one of their “Up Next – Cinematographers to Watch”. He has had multiple projects in competition at notable festivals, like the Sundance hits David Crosby: Remember My Name (2019), and “Whiplash” (2013), the Jury Prize winning short film which Damien Chazelle adapted into the BAFTA and Academy Award winning film.
Edd has been the director of photography on over 25 feature films such as Nancy Drew and the Hidden Staircase, Acts of Violence, and The Gallows, distributed by the likes of Warner Bros, Lionsgate and Sony. He has shot narrative, commercial, documentary, and music videos across North America, Europe, Asia and South America, working with such reputable brands as Gillette, Lego, Budweiser, Chrysler, Newsweek and GQ.
Edd is well-versed using film as well as all digital formats. He holds two MA degrees: one from the London Film School (where he was the youngest ever graduate), and one from the prestigious American Film Institute (where he specialized in Cinematography – again as one of the youngest in his class). Edd now splits his time between London and Los Angeles. Recently, Edd shot the upcoming project Surprised By Oxford in the UK, a feature film based on the best-selling memoir.
