Aparently they are both the same thing, although it's debatable

Vittorio Storaro on ICG chat:

Frank: Vittorio, what do you feel was your best photographed picture?

Vittorio Storaro: This is a question that has been posed to me several times.

Vittorio Storaro: First of all, I would like to make clear, I can't do photography on film. I can do cinematography.
Because photography is an expression in one single image. And cinematography is writing with light and movement. This is exactly what we are doing.

Hi,

That kind of pedantry just comes off as pompous to me...

Sure sucks having an established professional with more experience than you voice their opinion, doesn't it?

:lol:

Mr. Storaro has definately earned the right and I for one welcome and encourage such "pedantry":

Personally I find the term 'cinematographer' much more accurate.

Agreed. However, if there's one guy who's earned the right to be pompous...

As for this:

Vittorio Storaro: First of all, I would like to make clear, I can't do photography on film. I can do cinematography.
Because photography is an expression in one single image. And cinematography is writing with light and movement. This is exactly what we are doing.


So stills photography isn't "writing with light"? This interview must've been associated with the release of his documentary:
