After Yves Lafaye graduated from L'École Nationale Supérieure Louis-Lumiére--the premiere French cinematography school--the prolific filmmaker dove right into the industry. His first job as a cinematographer was in 1970 for the French short film "Renaissance." Over the ensuing decades, he would go on to shoot more than 60 films and TV series as either a cinematographer or a camera operator, along the way getting to work with a number of filmmaking legends, including Bob Swaim, Claude Faraldo, and Jacques Doillon. Some of his most notable films include the 1975 World War II film "Un Sac de Billes" and the 1981 French melodrama "La Vie Continue." In 1991, Lafaye took on a new role: he directed his first movie, the made-for-TV crime drama "L'Enveloppe." But he would soon return to managing the camera for one of his most significant jobs. From 1992 to 1998, he worked as the cinematographer for the highly popular "Highlander" TV series (he also did some directing for the show, though it was only one episode during the show's sixth season). While Lafaye is primarily known for his work behind the lens, and to a lesser extent for his directing, he also penned one TV movie, "Colis d'Oseille," in 1993.
