Roger Deakins was born in Torquay, Devon, England. He attended art college and the National Film School. He started in documentaries, shooting many in Africa as well as covering the Whitbread Round the World Yacht race that required him to work for more than 9 months as a crew member while filming a documentary.
Roger then went on to feature cinematography, starting in England and then later shooting in the United States.
His primary hobby is taking still photographs. Before he entered the National Film School, he spent a year in North Devon, England, documenting the way of life on the farms and in the villages. This cemented his passion for still photography that continues to this day. On the rare days that he is not in his boat while in Devon, he enjoys traveling to various places to augment his growing series of images.
This web site will present a sampling of his photos as well as provide a forum for questions and discussions on film, fishing or whatever else comes to mind. If you wish to email him directly, you can use the link at the top of the pages.
