Originally from Israel, Oron Cohen began filmmaking at the
age of 16.
He studied cinematography at the highly acclaimed Sam Spiegel
Film & Television School, Jerusalem, and graduated in 2005 as
the best cinematographer in his year.

Since graduating, Oron has worked for a large number of production companies from around the world and has been the director of
photography for feature films, documentaries, TV dramas, short films,
and music videos.
A number of these productions have been screened and have won awards
at the leading International film festivals, including Cannes, Berlin, Birds
Eye View, Media School Lodz, and Fipa.

Oron believes that every film has to have its own voice and its own
language, because every film tells a unique story.
In his work he aspires to transform the story into emotions, and then
the emotions into light and images.
In order to achieve this, he likes to take inspiration from a broad range
of art forms – painting, sculpturing, photography, and even music
– which help to shape the film's visual language.

In addition, Oron possesses an in-depth technical knowledge, ranging
from Digital to all film formats.
He learnt his craft mainly on negative film and has a passion for film
cameras, although he was also one of the first people back in 2007 to embrace Digital 4K cinema cameras with the RED ONE.
He believes strongly that all these formats and cameras (from Arri Alexa
and RED EPIC to 35mm or even a 16mm Bolex) should co-exist in order
to give the cinematographer a greater range of tools to capture light with
and to 'paint' the image in a more subtle and specific way.
