Ben Seresin B.S.C., A.S.C., has lensed a number of notable features with big-name directors. He collaborated with Michael Bay on Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen and on Pain and Gain. He shot Marc Forster’s World War Z starring Brad Pitt (sharing credit with Robert Richardson, A.S.C.), and Tony Scott’s Unstoppable for which he was nominated for the Satellite Award for Best Cinematography. The movie starred Denzel Washington and Chris Pine. More recently, Seresin worked with Doug Liman on 2021’s Chaos Walking starring Daisy Ridley and Tom Holland, 2021’s Godzilla vs. Kong featuring Alexander Skarsgard and Millie Bobby Brown, and Niki Caro’s upcoming feature, The Mother, starring Jennifer Lopez and Ralph Fiennes, set to debut in May 2023. He’s currently filming the sequel to Godzilla vs. Kong.

Seresin grew up in New Zealand and moved to the UK to pursue his dream in film. He built a stellar reputation in the commercial and television world before making his feature film debut on Mike Barker’s The James Gang. He was able to strengthen his action prowess as 2nd unit director of photography on such films as Lara Croft: Tomb Raider and Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines. His major break came when he took over for Dariusz Wolski, A.S.C. on first unit for Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End, after Wolski had to leave early to start work on another project.

In between films, Seresin uses commercials and music videos as a creative testing ground for new equipment and techniques. Seresin’s PUMA commercial with director Ringan Ledwidge After Hours Athlete, was awarded the Film Grand Prix at the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity in 2011. And the NIKE commercial he lensed, Winner Stays On, was used as NIKE’s main commercial during the final of the 2014 FIFA World Cup.
