Hi, I'm Craig

Craig Minielly

I was just seven years old when my Mum gave me my first camera, a Click o Matic 126 as I recall, that I used to take tons of very important photos in the back yard… I didn’t really know how to advance the film properly, so thankfully the B/W processing bills were minimal. Many years later, I’m still loving every moment that comes to me & my cameras, albeit a bit more sophisticated in operations these days… Thanks Mum!

When you ask me to work with you, you’ll find that I’m impassioned to capture imagery that tells the deep story of your film’s production, the personalities of the characters within, and the crew around it that make it all happen. I’m known for working well with all others on set, getting those memorable shots without getting in the way… bringing the characters to life in still moments to tell the tale, sell the film and make my Mum proud.

Having a well honed sense of timing, that when combined with a lifetime love of light and all its creative possibilities, enables a solid foundation for capturing storytelling images and ensuring very happy clients.
