About

Bart Sienkiewicz is a Director of Photography based in London and working on feature films, TV series and commercials worldwide. He is a member of BAFTA and the Polish Society of Cinematographers (PSC).

Bart’s fascination with movies began in his childhood and he soon developed a passion for the art and craft of filmmaking. After graduating from the Film and Television Academy in his native Poland, Bart started working as a camera assistant until 2008, when he moved to the UK and began working as a freelance cinematographer. He has since been featured in the British Cinematographer 'New Wave'.

Bart’s theatrical feature films include Amblin-esque sci-fi drama Dark Encounter (Dir. Carl Strathie) which premiered at FrightFest and Film4; 1970-set coming-of-age comedy The Bromley Boys (Dir. Steve M Kelly) which was nominated for the 'Best Theatrical Campaign' at the UK Screen Awards; and space thriller Solis (Dir. Carl Strathie) which premiered at the Edinburgh International Film Festival.

In TV Drama, Bart shot an original series Immortality (Dir. Nick Parish) for Blackpills US.

Always looking for new creative opportunities, Bart collaborated with acclaimed artist Shezad Dawood on art films Piercing Brightness, Towards The Possible and Leviathan, which have been exhibited at prestigious galleries and festivals internationally, inc. Venice Biennale, Art Dubai & Guggenheim NYC.

In between, Bart shot commercials for brands like Adidas, Sainsbury’s, Argos, Barclays, Carphone Warehouse, Ecovacs, Minecraft, PayPal, Yonex, Walkers, Avon, Balantine’s and NatWest.

With over 15 years of experience as a Director of Photography on studio, virtual production and location based shoots with local and international crews, Bart has built a reputation for supporting directors and working collaboratively with other HODs, whilst translating the story’s unique concept into cinematic moving images.
