Cinematographer. Filmmaker. Storyteller.
Cinematography has been a passion of Grant’s since he was a young boy. He has single-mindedly pursued nothing but the art of capturing the most striking and originally portrayed moving images onto film ever since.
After qualifying at film school in Cape Town, South Africa, Grant soon found himself spearheading some very challenging commercial and documentary film projects in collaboration with long time film partner and director, Bryan Little. Together with producer Filipa Domingues they have made 3 local documentaries which have won many international and local awards.
Grant was independently headhunted to photograph some major commercial projects locally as well as abroad. In 2004 his work on the short film ‘Tagging Toilets’ was awarded the VISIBLE SPECTRUM award from the South African Society of Cinematographers, making him the youngest cinematographer to ever receive this award.
Grant also worked on the short film ‘Pumzi’ which won ‘Best Short Film’ at the Cannes Independent Film festival and made it into the official selection for Sundance. He was asked to shoot his first feature film titled ‘SPOON’ which was shot on the SI-2k (Silicon imaging 2 K) camera, this was the first time this type of camera had ever been used for a feature film.
Grant has shot all over the world in countries such as Spain, Kenya, Malaysia, Thailand, China, India, Singapore, Namibia and Mozambique. His recent 2nd unit feature film work includes Raised By Wolves, Escape Room 1 & 2, Chronicle, Homeland S4, The Last Post and Red Sea Diving Resort
