Ed Thomas is a Director of Photography working in commercial, narrative and documentary film.

Ed has shot hundreds of films, working professionally since 1998 and independently since 2006. He works across UK, Europe and USA, shooting online campaigns, TV and cinema advertising spots for brands including Rolls-Royce, Canon, Sony, Danone, Kodak and Jaguar.

In addition to camera and lighting skills, Ed is a confident visual storyteller, being involved in the broader production process from script and storyboard to crewing and budgeting. In 2006, Ed set up production company Doubleshot, and has since developed a unique ability to create work suited to both the target audience and client.

“Ed's visual talent is second to none, and I seriously believe him to be a major player who we'll see in years to come right up there with the best cinematographers. I've worked with Ed as my DoP for 8 years, and trust him to keep things moving efficiently in the very intense environment on set.”
Mark McGann, director
