Robert Richardson is a three-time Academy Award winner for Best Cinematography for his work on Oliver Stone's historic tapestry JFK, Martin Scorsese's THE AVIATOR, and most recently for Scorsese's HUGO.


HUGO marked Richardson's seventh collaboration with Martin Scorsese, having previously worked on CASINO, BRINGING OUT THE DEAD, SHUTTER ISLAND and the documentary GEORGE HARRISON: LIVING IN THE MATERIAL WORLD. Richardson also lensed and supervised an all-star group of cinematographers on the Rolling Stones concert film SHINE A LIGHT.


Richardson has enjoyed a long-standing relationship with director Oliver Stone. Their work together includes NATURAL BORN KILLERS, DOORS, NIXON, BORN ON THE FOURTH OF JULY and PLATOON, the latter two of which Richardson garnered Academy Award nominations.


Richardson's other credits include SNOW FALLING ON CEDARS, THE HORSE WHISPERER, THE GOOD SHEPHERD, EIGHT MEN OUT and A FEW GOOD MEN. Richardson has photographed several documentaries with Errol Morris, including FAST, CHEAP AND OUT OF CONTROL, MR. DEATH, and the unflinching Abu Ghraib documentary STANDARD OPERATING PROCEDURE.


Richardson most recently lensed DJANGO UNCHAINED (for which he is nominated for an Academy Award), his fourth film collaboration with Quentin Tarantino, having worked on KILL BILL: Volumes 1 and 2, and INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS, which garnered eight Academy Award nominations, including Best Cinematography.
