“Gosh, where do I begin about American Cinematographer magazine? It’s just always been wonderful to have a publication that focuses so deeply on the technical and aesthetic aspects of motionpicture photography. It’s a bible for cinematographers and directors alike.”
— Christopher Nolan
“American Cinematographer has forever been our ‘gateway drug’ into the world of making films, tickling and satisfying the curiosity of many students and filmmakers alike. Shooting is a mysterious and schizophrenic occupation, and the magazine has traditionally provided the finest insights into how technology meets with ambitious visual ideas and image poetry. It’s been a career-long guiding light into the secrets behind the camera.”
— Hoyte van Hoytema, ASC, FSF, NSC
