Based in Copenhagen and the Baltic island of Bornholm, Jesper Westley has for the past 20 years shot assignments in more than 60 countries. Being equally comfortable with large scale productions to one man reportage assignments, he brings loads of knowledge and insights to the job:

“ My job is to give projects a visual voice. I work hard to create a narrative. Often behind what seems like a snap, there is a lot planning, perhaps a big team just behind me. Ultimately, I have to make locations and people melt together to create that image communicating something special. Yes, I am the DOP, I call the shots and pull the trigger, but without a good team, communication and working relationship with the client we don’t get the best results. So I plan a lot, communicate a lot and shoot a lot; and …. hmm, also ensure we all have a really good time in the process.”
