Barry Ackroyd, BSC
Academy Award nominated Director of Photography Barry Ackroyd, BSC, began his career in documentaries, early on as an assistant but quickly progressing to cinematographer on numerous productions -and feature films soon followed. The documentary approach and giving the audience a feeling of ”you are there” are two signature aspects of Ackroyd’s work.
As a Director of Photography, Barry has enjoyed several repeated collaborations with highly successful directors, such as Ken Loach (12 films!), Kathryn Bigelow and Paul Greengrass, and his impressive catalogue of work runs the full gamut from Ken Loach’s Irish historical drama The Wind that Shakes the Barley to the nonstop adrenaline rush of Paul Greengrass’ Jason Bourne, with hits like The Hurt Locker (AAN) The Big Short and Captain Phillips in between.
Sophie Winqvist Loggins, DFF, FSF
divides her time between locations as exotic as Österlen, Copenhagen, Stockholm and Bombay. Originally a stills photographer, she also holds a degree in art sciences as well as having graduated from Stockholms Filmskola in 2004 and the National Danish Film School in 2009. Her catalogue of work ranges from sci-fi, documentaries, art projects and Bollywood-movies to commercials.
Her most recent assignment is the TV series Rebecka Martinsson. This autumn she will be working on two projects, Ninja Thyberg’s feature film Bella Cherry set in the pornographic film business of Los Angeles, and Clara Sola a feature film about a woman with magical powers set in Costa Rica and directed by Nathalie Álvarez Mesén.
Ulf Brantås, FSF
In the spotlight right now with the acclaimed Netflix TV-series Quicksand (2019) Ulf Brantås, FSF, nonetheless candidly points out his career hasn’t followed a traditionally straight line. Brantås embarked on an intense collaboration with director Roy Andersson in the early 1980s, first as a line producer, but soon advanced to becoming DP on Andersson’s numerous commercials. Feature films eventually followed and Brantås can now look back on an impressive lineup of titles, many being the result of long collaborations with directors like Lukas Moodysson, Per-Olav Sørensen and Björn Runge. Among the best known titles bearing Brantås’ signature are Fucking Åmål (1998), Tillsammans (2000), Om jag vänder mig om (2003) and The Wife (2017).
Ragna Jorming, FSF
Ragna was a film buff from her early teens, but her first four years as an adult was spent in art schools. She has a BA in Fine Arts from Winchester, England. Back in Stockholm she attended Stockholm Film School, now set on becoming a DoP. She worked as clapper loader and focus puller for a few years before doing her second BA, this time in Cinematography, at Dramatiska Institutet in Stockholm. Since graduation in 2006 she has shot a variety of drama and commercials. Among her feature films are Kyss mig (2011) and Pojkarna (2015), both directed by Alexandra-Therese Keining and Återträffen, directed by Anna Odell. Her most recent feature is Føniks, a Norwegian production directed by Camilla Strøm.
Ragna is a dedicated and positive force on set, intensely concerned with how the talents are being lit and depicted, all the time thinking about what’s best for the story.
