Janusz Kamiński


Polish cinematographer Janusz Kaminski only had a handful of cinematography credits to his name when Steven Spielberg chose him to shoot his passion project, Schindler’s List. Kaminski’s beautiful, mostly black-and-white photography earned him his first Academy Award.

He has since been nominated for multiple Best Cinematography Oscars, winning his second Oscar for Saving Private Ryan. Since Schindler’s List, Kaminski has filmed many of Spielberg’s films, including Catch Me if You CanMunichAmistadMinority Report, and Ready Player One. Other notable credits include Jerry Maguire and The Diving Bell and the Butterfly.

Kaminski worked on the latest remake of West Side Story, which won ‘Best Cinematography’ at the 94th Academy Awards in 2022.
