Bart Sienkiewicz is a Polish cinematographer based in London and working internationally on feature films, TV drama and commercials.

After graduating from the Film and Television Academy in his native Warsaw, Bart worked as a camera assistant until 2008, when he moved to the UK and began working as a Director of Photography.

It was Bart’s work on the awards-strewn short The Herd that started to get him recognition, and his reputation for supporting directors and realising strong visuals has since been consolidated with his work on theatrical feature films Dark Encounter (Dir. Carl Strathie) an Amblin-esque sci-fi drama which premiered at FrightFest, space thriller Solis (Dir. Carl Strathie) which premiered at the Edinburgh International Film Festival and The Bromley Boys (Dir. Steve M Kelly) a 1970-set coming-of-age comedy which was nominated for the 'Best Theatrical Campaign' at the UK Screen Awards. As well as features, Bart has also photographed a Blackpills Original Series Immortality (Dir. Nick Parish).

In between working on narrative projects, Bart enjoys shooting commercials and promos (clients include Adidas, PayPal, Microsoft, Sainsbury's, Carphone Warehouse, Yonex, NatWest, Guinness, Ballantine's).

With over a decade of experience as a Director of Photography, on both studio and location based shoots across Europe, Africa, Middle East and Asia, he is represented in the UK by the Screen Talent Agency.
