David Appleby began his career as a photographer in advertising and was later introduced into the film industry by Lord David Puttnam and Sir Alan Parker, with whom he formed close working relationships, joining them on cinematic masterpieces such as ‘The Killing Fields’, ‘The Mission’, ‘Mississippi Burning’ and ‘Evita’.
He views his distinguished career as a natural outgrowth of his twin passions: the cinema and photography. He has gone on to work with top filmmakers including Sir Ridley Scott (Robin Hood), Terry Gilliam (Brazil), The Wachowski Brothers (V For Vendetta) and Steven Spielberg (Warhorse).
