As the cinematographer of choice for director Christopher Nolan, Wally Pfister brought darkness and light to nearly all of the filmmaker's features, including "Memento" (2002), "Batman Begins" (2005) and the blockbuster "The Dark Knight" (2008). A former television cameraman for news programs like "Frontline" (PBS, 1983- ), Pfister broke into the movies after serving as a camera operator on Robert Altman's docudrama miniseries "Tanner '88" (HBO, 1988). His keen eye quickly elevated him from low-budget thrillers for Roger Corman to major motion pictures like "Phenomenon" (1996) and "Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery" (1997). But it was his collaborations with Nolan that truly brought him into the spotlight. From the dark, gritty world of "Batman Begins" and "The Dark Knight," to the visually stunning camerawork on "Inception" (2010), Pfister received a deluge of praise of his efforts and solidified his position as one of the most talented and acclaimed cinematographers working in Hollywood.
