Andrew Lesnie (1956)

Type :  


Andrew Lesnie, A.C.S., A.S.C., is an Australian cinematographer. Lesnie attended the Australian Film Television and Radio School , graduating in 1979. His first job after graduation was as a cameraman on the Logie Award-winning Australian magazine-style afternoon TV show Simon Townsend's Wonder World. Simon Townsend gave Lesnie almost daily opportunities to develop his craft with little restriction over a wide variety of stories and situations, and to experiment with camera and lighting techniques in hundreds of locations and situations. After two years of working on the show, Lesnie moved on to numerous Australian film and television productions, including the mini-series Bodyline.

His work began receiving major attention after the release of the anthropomorphic pig story Babe and its sequel, Babe: Pig in the City. He was director of photography on Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings trilogy, and received an Oscar for his work on The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring in 2002. Since then, he has filmed several other Jackson-directed films, including King Kong and The Lovely Bones, and will also film the upcoming The Hobbit films directed by Jackson.

He lives on the North Coast of Sydney, New South Wales, Australia. He is a member of both the Australian Cinematographers Society and the American Society of Cinematographers.
