About the illuminatrix collectives

Launched in 2016, illuminatrix is a collective of professional female cinematographers based in the UK and working internationally.

Our collective exists as a public platform to promote and celebrate the work of our members.  It also acts as a private network for members to support one another and share our knowledge and resources.  We believe that through better visibility, coupled with more opportunities, we can inspire the next generation of women and progress towards gender parity in this competitive field.

While illuminatrix members have a minimum of five years’ professional experience as a Director of Photography, illuminatrix rising showcases the new generation of emerging cinematographers who may be transitioning from other roles or recent graduates.

As a whole, illuminatrix and illuminatrix rising make up an eclectic group of unique talents whose work stretches across narrative, documentary and commercial genres.

illuminatrix is not an agency and we do not handle the diaries for our members or recommend individuals for jobs.

Please take the time to view our members’ work and reach out to them or their agents directly through their contact details on their profile pages.

illuminatrix has been proud to partner with many organisations over the years, participating in talks, networking events, mentorship schemes, film festivals, equipment demos and other activities aimed at improving diversity within our industry.
