Director of Photography
Born in East London, gaining an art school background followed by a number of years in television and documentary, Laurie always wanted to convey stories visually. His break into narrative work came almost by accident with director Ben Wheatley on DOWN TERRACE (2009) and since then a passion for combining story with the moving image has led to further collaborations with some of the most exciting directors working today. For Laurie, it’s resolutely about collaboration – joining with like-minded people to realise a story together. Now based in Brighton, Laurie lives with his wife and two children.
Laurie Rose is known for his work with Ben Wheatley including HIGH-RISE and FREE FIRE. Also LONDON SPY, for the BBC for which he won a BAFTA for Photography and Lighting in 2016 and Season 3 of BBC’s PEAKY BLINDERS. Recent film credits include Saul Dibb’s JOURNEY’S END, Dominic Savage’s THE ESCAPE, Jon S Baird’s STAN AND OLLIE, starring Steve Coogan and John C Reilly, as well as PET SEMATARY, directed by Kevin Kölsch and Dennis Widmyer.
Projects due to release are REBECCA (Working Title/Netflix), and FREAKY (Universal/Blumhouse) – most recent projects include Jessica Swale’s SUMMERLAND and Gavin Rothery’s ARCHIVE.
Laurie is an accredited member and a Governor of the British Society of Cinematographers.
