Rick Joaquim, SASC Cinematographer

Rick Joaquim, SASC is an award-winning Director of Photography working within Commercials, Music videos and Narrative film.

Some of his clients include Netflix, the Last Week Tonight with John Oliver on HBO, ONE.org (Bono from U2's Non-Profit Organisation), BMW, Nandos and Virgin United shooting alongside Sir Richard Branson.

When you see Rick’s work, it takes a minute for you to put your finger on why you simply can’t look away. Soon you get it. There’s a kind of magic holding your gaze in every frame. For sure all the technical genius is present, but it’s his empathy with the subject matter that keeps you riveted. His love and respect for narrative is what drove him to film in the first place, but his dedication to each story - is what makes each picture a joy to watch. Rick is generous, determined and focused on bringing the heart of the piece into the light. He is also one of the best humans you’ll ever meet. Which is probably why he finds the kind of moments ordinary people overlook.

He is free to travel and work Internationally, holds both an EU and South African Passport, and has extensive shoot experience locally and abroad.

Rick's work was also included in the ARRI Camera Showreel 2019 and as a Official Selection for Sundance Film Festival in 2021.
