""I’m not fascinated by tools. I’m not fascinated by technology. I’m fascinated by the results of filmmaking“- Philippe Ross
Philippe Ross was born in France. After completing his studies at the Ecole Nationale Louis Lumière in Paris, he spent 11 years working as a camera assistant. He specialised in “intuitive” focusing. He filmed from a motorcycle during the Tour de France with two 35 mm cameras. Shoulder-held camera work became his area of specialisation. With his knowledge of dynamics and rhythm, Ros soon started shooting live concerts and also worked on music documentaries, commercials and corporate films as lighting director. Due to his intrest in digital cameras he has become an expert on digital intermediate and has spoken at many international conferences and seminars on the subject.
He calls his passion „rythm“. His passion is to find the tools to filmmakers so they can be in rythm with actors.
He is also delivering seminars, workshops and conferences for professionals and students all over the world.
