In 1978, after graduating from the INSAS film school, Louis-Philippe Capelle takes part in numerous projects as director of photography: from art house documentaries to television films, from fiction to advertising and TV documentaries. At the start of his career, he helps to create the production company Triangle 7, where he stays for 15 years. He then sets up the postproduction company Hoverlord, which will last for 5 years. After that, he begins to work for Eye-Lite, Belgium’s biggest audiovisual material company. He first participates to the development of digital cinema and then manages the commercial and artistic relations of the organization. This doesn’t prevent him from continuing his passion as he partakes in different projects as director of photography. But Louis-Philippe doesn’t stop there. Besides from teaching at various schools, he’s the chairman of IMAGO, a European federation for directors of photography that regroups 53 countries with almost 5.000 members worldwide. Since January, he’s vice-chairman of the SBC (Belgian Society of Cinematographers).
