Instructors Bio:

In recent years, Benjamin Loeb has established himself as a skilled and respected film professional and artist. His work on Panos Cosmatos’ MANDY (2018) which starred Nicolas Cage, premiered at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival. A four-star review from The Guardian called Loeb’s work on the film “visually amazing” and he garnered a nomination for Best Cinematography at the 2019 Independent Spirit Awards for his work on this production.

His recent work on the feature film, Pieces of a Woman (2020), starred Vanessa Kirby, Shia LaBeouf, and Ellen Burstyn. The film had its world premiere at the 77th Venice International Film Festival. Loeb served as the cinematographer on After Yang, which stars Colin Farrell and is set for release in 2021.

In addition to his work in feature films, Loeb has an extensive background shooting a wide-range of commercials. In 2011 he completed his Bachelor degree at Emily Carr University of Art and Design in Vancouver. Emily Carr focused its education on the artistic and conceptual development, which largely informed Loeb’s ideology when it comes to
cinema. After-graduating Loeb continued working in industry and quickly built a reputation shooting commercials, music videos, and narrative projects around the world. Since his graduation he has lived in Oslo, New York, and Reykjavik.

Loeb is represented by WME in North America, and by LUX in Europe and the rest of the world. He is also a member of the Norwegian Cinematographers Association.
