After making films as a teenager Phil Méheux began his professional career with the BBC Television Film Unit rising quickly through the ranks to film cameraman on many notable documentaries.
His first cinema feature, Black Joy, directed by Anthony Simmons, was the official British entry for the 1977 Cannes Film Festival. Photographing director, Martin Campbell's first feature film, Criminal Law, launched an unprecedented 20-year collaboration with films such as Defenceless, No Escape, The Mask of Zorro, Beyond Borders, The Legend of Zorro, Edge of Darkness, and two James Bond films, Goldeneye and Casino Royale, the latter earning him a BAFTA nomination, and the British Society of Cinematographers Best Cinematography award. In 2015 Méheux was presented with the American Society of Cinematographers International Award "reserved for cinematographers of international repute who have made extraordinary contributions to the art form."
One of the most experienced and versatile directors of photography working today, Méheux's other credits include the controversial Scum, The Fourth Protocol, Max Headroom, Ruby, The Saint, The Long Good Friday, Bicentennial Man, Beverly Hills Chihuahua, and Smurfs 1 & 2 as well as countless television and cinema commercials.
