Very under-appreciated DP, in my view. Grey Fox looks amazing, The Mean Season another really good looking film (and a good thriller). I've always had a sweet spot for The Package - a great cat and mouse thriller, well done and it has some very naturalistic and nice cinematography in it. As cheesy as it might be, Under Siege is a really good looking film, too.

 

RIP Frank Tidy.

Sad news. Time to load up some of his work and appreciate the art he left behind.
