About Me

Cinematographer. Filmmaker. Storyteller. 

Kent began his studies with science and teaching before delving into the arts. In studying fine art, Kent combined his interest in natural science, psychology, and sociology with abstract expressionism and installation sculptures. His honors thesis examined the psychology and physicality of light. All this before colliding headlong into his fascination with capturing images.
 

Impassioned by the desire to tell as much story as possible in a single frame, Kent worked for several years as a fashion photographer, which swiftly led to his role in the film industry.
 

In 2013 Kent completed a Graduate Diploma in Cinematography through AFTRS. He then went on to shoot award-winning titles: 2014's "Burn Point" with father and son Chris and Tim Blackburn, 2017's critically acclaimed Instagram series "The Out There", Joseph Chebatte's 2018 "Entrenched", and 2020 LGBQI winner of 2019 Sydney Mardi Gras film festival "Unsound".

In 2021 kent collaborated with  John Jarrtt on his film "What About Sal" and Jesse Ahern on the film "The Red Shoes - Next Steps". Both to be released in 2022.
