Søren Bay, DFF

Søren Bay DFF originally trained as a stills photographer but soon realised he wanted to work with moving images. After working as a gaffer, he gained a place at the renowned National Film and Television School in London, graduating with an MA in Cinematography in 1997. Søren has since worked as a DOP on many successful film and television projects in the UK and internationally.

He is intensely involved with the process of filmmaking. "It is extraordinary when an audience is captivated by a universe you have helped create.” He believes that the work done prior to shooting and the close collaboration with the other film departments is the key to success. "Film is a very complex and vulnerable entity, and the more prepared you are, the freer you are to work with the material. I trust my intuition and don’t shy away from taking chances”. This has resulted in some extraordinary and original filmmaking that he is extremely proud to have been a part of.
