Rina is a director of photography based in London. She grew up in a small city in Japan, where she studied still life and portrait painting.
“Rina Yang is a cinematographer making waves in the industry right now. Based in London by way of Japan, her name seems to be attached to more and more projects every week. Stylistically she’s something of a photographic chameleon, with each music video, commercial or film she shoots having a unique visual voice that lends itself perfectly to the subject matter. It’s a subtle style that doesn’t require brash composition, nor does it force you to consider ‘The Cinematographer’ (capital T, capital C). This sort of restraint shows a perfect understanding of what’s necessary to tell a story in line with a Director’s vision, and a great control of the craft.”
