Cinematographer Natalie Kingston was born and raised in a small southern Louisiana town where she ran around with a VHS camcorder on her shoulder shooting her own movies as a young girl.
She has shot multiple feature films and most recently received the Best Cinematography Award at the 2019 New Orleans Film Festival for her work on Brian C Miller Richard’s LOST BAYOU (Tribeca 2019). Variety describes her images as “relaxed and beautiful, capturing the remote milieu’s sunlight-dappled stillness and allure; the film casts an intermittent spell in those moments when it simply lingers on its unique landscape”.
Natalie has also recently photographed Alma Har’el’s FREE THE WORK ad which was spotlighted at CANNES LIONS in 2019. She shot Sam Pollard’s grammy-nominated film, TWO TRAINS RUNNIN’- a New York Times Critic Pick. She’s worked with artists like Billie Eilish, Buddy Guy and Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie.
Natalie is continually inspired by the collaborative process of creating a distinct visual language for each film.
