Gustav Danielsson

Director of Photography FSF


Gustav Danielsson received a lot of attention with his exceptional cinematography in award winning feature film "Du Levande" (You, the living) by Roy Andersson, for which he was nominated for a “Guldbagge” for best cinematography at the annual Swedish Film Gala 2008. He has since then completed a bunch of commercials, short films and feature films. Gustav has been working a lot in England lately, where his name has caused a lot of buzz. Just recently he finished off a new season of Netflix serial Black Mirror and just finished shooting the historical fiction ”Troy: fall of a city”, a massive BBC/Netflix series shot i South Africa during early 2017.

Gustav is very appreciated by all his clients and the directors he’s worked with. He works magic with light, creates a filmic international look and has a phenomenal talent to create cinematography that instantly captures the viewer. He has an eye for details and is great with storytelling, as well as nailing the atmosphere and revealing subtle humor - amongst other qualities.

As if this isn’t enough – he is also a very nice guy.
