Thomas Dalen


I’m a cinematographer based on the west coast of Norway with a passion for visual storytelling. With over a decade of experience in the film industry, I have honed my skills in capturing and creating captivating images that bring stories to life. I have a deep understanding of lighting, composition, and camera techniques, and use this knowledge to craft visually impactful scenes that support the narrative and evoke emotions in the audience.

I have a strong visual language that plays with both light and darkness. I’m a storyteller that focuses on grounded and real stories, with moody cinematography.


Working on a diverse range of projects, from fictions films to documentaries and commercials, I bring a creative and collaborative approach to every project. I love to  work closely with directors to fully understand the story they want to tell, while also bringing my own perspective and ideas to the table.


In addition to being a cinematographer, I’m also an experienced lighting technician – having worked on big international feature films and TV-series, as well as commercials, short films and music-videos.
