Rory grew up on a farm in the picturesque Highlands Meander of South Africa, inspiring him to see beauty wherever he goes. His earliest and fondest memories of cinema were watching cowboy movies with his father and brothers.
He studied Cinematography in Johannesburg and graduated in 2005 from AFDA, one of the leading outcomes-based film schools in the world.
Since then, he has worked as a DOP in China, Thailand and Sri Lanka, and has vast experienced in Africa all over.
Rory is the recipient of two South African Film and Television Awards: Best Achievement in Cinematography for a Feature Film in 2021 and a TV Drama in 2011.
Rory is a fan of preparation and planning, he is also open to venturing into the unknown, exploring ideas, and extending his reach. For him, meaning comes from feeling, looking beyond the frame to capture the humanity within. Reflecting stories that change hearts and minds is what he enjoys most.
He just married and moved from South Africa to Hamburg and is now eager to learn german. So we hope he finds his luck here in Germany and we are happy to have him in the Trinity Family.
