About

Biography

Driven by the desire to tell as much story as possible in a single image, Kent worked for several years as fashion photographer which opened avenues into the feature film industry. A breakthrough collaboration in early 2012 with Uttam Mukherjee on his short film “Don’t Love Thy Neighbour” saw success in the international film festivals, Asian Film Festival of Dallas, Columbia Gorge International Film festival, Downtown Tyler Film Festival, Film Dayton Festival and the Glen Rose Neo­Relix. He shot his first feature film in 2012/2013, an Indian production “My Cornerstone,” directed by Stanley Joseph released late 2014. Kent completed a Graduate Diploma in Cinematography through AFTRS in 2013. He distinguished himself in creative storytelling and with his distinctive aesthetic lighting effects. Kent completed several successful short film projects, one of which was accepted to the Antipodean Showcase at Cannes for 2014. Kent’s most recent work was in the role of cinematographer for Tim Blackburns feature film “Burns Point” filmed in Ballina NSW, scheduled to be released in 2015.
