VISION TAP RISING DOP IGOR SMITKA.
3 June 2019

Vision's Emerging Talent wing are delighted to announce the signing of Igor Smitka, one of Slovakia's most promising cinematographers.

Well versed in fine art and high-end photography, Smitka is drawn to projects that require a more refined aesthetic. Needless to say, this has made him popular with brands and clients at the pricier end of the spectrum.

Take this 2018 Gucci commercial, for instance; one of several collaborations with director and fellow Slovak Adam Csoka Keller, the ad is rendered in a subtle golden hue, with Smitka balancing hints of opulence with the glow of a taxi's interior Christmas lights.


As well as high-profile campaigns like this, Smitka is also determined to use his skills to help those overlooked and unrepresented on our screens. This ethos led Smitka to another shoot with Csoka Keller - this time for Nowness and an enlightening performance of Stravinsky's The Rite of Spring by dancers with Down's syndrome.



Like the cut of Igor Smitka's jib? Then speak to Vision's Michele Gordon on 020 7439 4657 or email her via michele@visionatwizzo.com.
